Just wondering, i haven't drank any alcohol since Ra diagnosis and was never a big drinker other than in my college days haha! My meds are listed below. We are going to a wedding soon and was wondering if anyone has had a few glasses of wine with the methotrexate and Plaquenil ? I am so paranoid of liver and kidney damage with all these meds and this is actually my biggest fear since diagnosis. I don't want to skip meds because the RA is defenitely not under control yet. Also, can anyone recommend what type of exercise is best. I used to walk and bike and since Dx I've put on weight (steroids don't help). I was thinking of trying swimming? I got the results from last set of xrays and my back is in terrible shape. I have a fear that i will wake up one morning and not be able to walk. The only good news is that i was approved for long term disability benefits through work. If any one has any answers it would help and if not thanks for letting me vent.
