Lupus
By Mayo Clinic staff
~
Lupus is a chronic inflammatory disease that occurs when your body’s immune system attacks your own tissues and organs. Inflammation caused by lupus can affect many different body systems — including your joints, skin, kidneys, blood cells, brain, heart and lungs.
~
Lupus can be difficult to diagnose because its signs and symptoms often mimic those of other ailments. The most distinctive sign of lupus — a facial rash that resembles the wings of a butterfly unfolding across both cheeks — occurs in many but not all cases of lupus.
~
The most common signs and symptoms include:
~
~ Fatigue and fever
~ Joint pain, stiffness and swelling
~ *Butterfly-shaped rash on the face that covers the cheeks and bridge of the nose
~ Skin lesions that appear or worsen with sun exposure
~ Fingers and toes that turn white or blue when exposed to cold or during stressful periods (Raynaud’s phenomenon)
~ Shortness of breath
~ Chest pain
~ Dry eyes
~ Headaches, confusion, memory loss
~
When to see a doctor
See your doctor if you develop an unexplained rash, ongoing fever, persistent aching or fatigue.
