Today, it is used to treat rheumatoid arthritis, some symptoms of lupus, childhood arthritis or juvenile idiopathic arthritis and other autoimmune diseases. It is not clear why hydroxychloroquine is effective at treating autoimmune diseases. Why It Is Used. Sjögren's syndrome is an autoimmune disorder in which the immune system attacks the body's moisture-producing glands and may eventually cause problems with the function of vital organs, such as the lungs, bladder, kidneys, and liver. Sjogren’s syndrome can affect all moisture-producing glands and tissues in the body – not just the eyes and mouth – and cause a host of symptoms. Below is head-to-toe a look at over-the-counter and prescription treatment options, as well as some medical procedures, for this common autoimmune condition that affects nine times as many women.

It is apparently kind of a wonder-drug for Lupus, in that it actually prevents flares in the majority, or a large percentage, of people.

    Tingling! - Feb 26, 2008 My tingling in the sun is caused by photosensitivity, which can be caused by lupus or some of the lupus medications. Tingling in arms, legs, hands, feet I've found to be minor neuropathy; basically a nerve inflammation that comes and goes with lupus activity.
