I'm new to this forum.
After battling Hashimotos for a year , I seem to be better according to my labs. I am a bit healthier, but I still have
Deep painful Muscle aches ( all over , but especially calves they feel tight)
itchy rash, on tip of nose , fingers and toes , heel and knees periodically summer and winter
slight blurry vision / slight pressure on right eye.
My RNP levels are at 80 ( ref. range 0-19)
speckled ana of 1:180
no diagnosis yet, but treating me as if I have MCTD...
Therapuetic trial of
Prednisone twice. ----no effect
I've tried Plaquinel for a month
400mg daily (split up am/pm)
Same with Gabapentin/ cymbalta.
SO, I'm gonna try plaquinel 400mg for 3-6 months (after a second eye exam )
Looks like I have to wait a few months ., but if you have any suggestions of books on diets, or good rheumatologists in Chicago please let me know.
Thanks for you r time
