ok, so this is probably going to sound like the most hair-brained crazy question ever :)
But can drinking Coke cause a flare? I used to love coke! Never drank it very much, but on occasion it would just hit the spot :) But after awhile I started noticing I would feel pretty achy afterwards. Last time I had any, all I had was 2 SIPS and within a couple hours I hurt so bad I had to go lay in bed ... I felt like I was hit by a Mac truck. :( I always assumed I had just developed some weird allergy to it.
I don't know for sure if I have lupus ... had a few tests done that were inconclusive. Lots of symptoms, though.
