Antonellina: Lupus

Italy

Butterflies in Enderlin by Shelley EnszMy name is Antonella, I am forty-eight, and eight years ago I was diagnosed with Lupus. I have periodic checks, and my illness has responded well to therapy—deltacortene, plaquenil, cardioaspirin.

About five months ago, I suspended the intake of plaquenil due to a probable deposit of chloroquine in my retina. Since I suspended the medication, I have noticed that I get vertigo more often, the most devastating symptom of this illness.

Is there anyone who has or has had this problem? I am available for information and comparison of symptoms.
