Thanks everybody for your prompt replies. I had an appt. with my General Physician yesterday and she thought that it could be fat cells/deposits. Since I have an appt. with my Rheumatologist on the 22nd of this month, she advised me to ask him too, so I will, as I had thought of that too. When losing weight (-62#), these cells will shrink but never completely go away, even if we weigh a measly 100#! It's just that they can show up more with losing alot of fat. Ugh, I hate that word! So that's her thoughts, but it will be interesting to see what my Rheumy says in less than a week now. Wow, August is going fast! Oh, and yes, TINYBUBBA, I will check out the side effects of Plaquenil. I'm surprised I haven't thought of that. Have mainly zeroed in on MTX!
Have a good day!!
