Citric acid/ rheumatoid arthritis
ihave had severe rheumatoid arthritis for about 8 months and conditions are made alot worse if i have anything to eat or drink which contains citric acid is this normal and is there anything i can take to counteract this.
The only possible solution would be to not drink or eat foods containing citric acid. You should follow-up with your rheumatologist to make sure that your rheumatoid arthritis is being optimally treated. Additional therapy may attenuate your reactions to citric acid.
