6 years ago I became paralyzed with pain. I couldn t even raise a finger. It was a gradual process over a week or two. First my leg hurt, then it spread to the other leg and within days, I couldn t move. After lab work, I was ANA positive. My Dr. mentioned Lupus. I was on Prednisone for 1 1/2 years (gained 40 lbs) and Plaquenil ever since. In 2011, my labs indicated low lympho and low mono. My Dr. mentioned Lupus again, but wouldn t diagnose me. I ve seen my Dr every 6 months for 6 years, and last week she stated since I haven t had a flare, no current ulcers in my nose, no joint pain, etc. that I should possibly stop taking Plaquenil. That is my first question. Should I agree with her decision to stop taking Plaquenil. Second, I just received my CBC results from a CBC I was given last week. Once again my lympho and mono were low, in addition to my MCH being high. Are all of these related? Do they still indicate Lupus? Due to the high MCH, my PCP kept asking if I was around car exhaust, a gas leak, if I drink alcohol, etc. What are your thoughts?
