I was reading somewhere that Coffee Drinkers are more likely to have RA.  I found that very interesting, I have never been a Coffee drinking except this past year which oddly is when the RA kicked in,  I highly that its connected, but I bet if you have it already and drink alot of coffee it might add to  or cause flare ups. 
I like coffe and can take it or leave it so I figure hey if I can slow down a flare up by reduceing the coffe in take or all caffine for that matter then I will.
I thought everyone else could post here lil tid bits they may have discoverd about RA and lil things that seem to help.
RA, - Enbrel, prednisone, folic acid, Vitamin C

I think it's the caffine that irritates the RA, right?

We've had some threads here before that talk about things we've found irritate our RA or help. There's a pretty funny one somewhere, I think it's titled Pickle Juice. tongue

Thanks for the post. I know I should cut back on the caffinated sodas (okay all sodas), but the caffine actually seems to help my allergies. Maybe it's the carbonation too....
