I’ve been on methotrexate 20 yrs. RA has somewhat worsened over last 2 yrs. Most days are managed with 2 ibuprofen when I get up; then again mid afternoon; 1000 mg Turmeric in AM; cherries in season, blueberries. Rheumy said we can switch from or add to methotrexate. Labs are normal.
I’ve been aching longer in am, sob quickly. Cardio said to lose weight. I see there is a little known thing called RA Lung which docs don’t recognize.

So this is a long story.. About a few months ago they started me on arava/leflunomide.. Around the same time, i started to drink these waters with electrolytes even though i wasnt working out/losing any water. About a month passed and i had this really uncomfortable sensation in my stomach like i was super bloated it was tender to the touch and it just kinda ached a little.
