Before I got sick - presumably with Lupus SLE - I used to enjoy our German beer and sometimes really a lot of it. Now it just destroys me. If I consume just one large beer (about 500 millilitres) I am down for 24 hours. I know that this is not all too sad because alcohol is not a good or neccessary thing in life. Anyway I wonder if any of you have the same experience? Also it seems like coffee/caffein makes my symptoms worse.
