    So I started plaquenil yesterday and had one of the most severe reactions to it. My legs wouldn’t stop spazzing/shaking, my arms went completely numb and cold. I felt dizzy, sick, tired, and pretty much every extreme side effect of the drug. We went to the ER, cause I couldn’t put weight on my legs or walk. After a high dose of steroids, some strong anti anxiety meds, and prayer, things got better enough for me to go home. Thankfully I only took half a dose to start bc my rheumatologist was scared of something like that happening (hence only being on methotrexate until now) Time to try a new drug. Send some prayers and good vibes my way today ♥️
