From the beginning of treatment my rheumy put me on 400mg of Plaquenil daily. I take one pill in the morning and one at night. I struggled sticking to my meds and treatment plan for the first couple months or my diagnosis because I was in denial and didn't really believe it so I just recently started taking my medications again as prescribed (I was diagnosed October 2015).

I keep getting head spins and have noticed my memory seems to have just gone. I'll be asked to do something and 2 mins later, I've completely forgotten. Does anyone know if memory fog/loss is mainly during a flare up or does it come back?

I've been going through this long bout of insomnia for months and the doctors are not doing anything about it... GRRRR! I just wanna sleep! I'm up until 4-5am everyday and then I sleep until about 11am at the latest. It's really wearing me thin. When I explain my fatigue to the doc, they tell me I'm depressed and I really don't think I am. I just need adequate rest. When I awake from the few hrs sleep, I'm in pain and want to lay around for hours... help!
