Another night wide awake after having a glass of wine. I've noticed it over the last few weeks that when I go out for a meal and have a drink I just can't sleep, palpitations, my tremors are worse and muscles really hurt. Is this normal for Lupus suffers?
Alcohol has always been a treat and many of my friends like to drink but it's getting to the stage where I am scared to drink as I know it'll affect me badly. My friends don't understand and keep encouraging me to go out with them but I know I'll be tempted to have a drink so would just rather not bother. But then feel I'm just isolating myself even more and missing out socialising which has always been a big part of my life until this past year where I've been sick.
Could the hydroxy be contributing? As my stomach is quite upset more recently than normal. Usually it was caused by gluten. But as soon as I got in I had diarrhoea and I only had a salad for my meal besides the glass of wine so no gluten.
I'm already sick so the last thing I want to do is contribute to it and with fatigue really need my sleep. So I know I'll now be sick for a few days. My friend knows someone with lupus and she was she can't drink so I wondered if there was a connection?
