Lupus is an autoimmune disease that causes swelling and various symptoms. Lupus has a different impact on everyone. Many people only have a few mild symptoms, while others have a lot more severe.
Symptoms usually start in early adulthood, from puberty to the 1930s. People with lupus usually develop symptoms and then remission periods. That is why it is convenient to ignore early symptoms.
Since early symptoms are similar to those of other conditions, it does not always mean that you have lupus. Early symptoms may consist of:
Some 90% of lupus suffer from some degree of fatigue. Some people have a nap in the afternoon, but too many sleeps during the day can lead to sleeplessness in the night. It might be hard, but you might be able to maintain your energy level if you can remain active and stick to a daily routine.
Talk to your doctor if you are experiencing weakening tiredness. There are certain causes of fatigue.
Low grade fever for no apparent reason is one of the first signs of lupus. You might not feel you should see a doctor because it may linger between 98.5 liners F (36.9 liners C) and 101 liners F (38.3 linens C). That form of fever can occur to people with lupus on and off.
Infection, inflammation or imminent outbreaks may result in low levels of fever. Make an appointment to see your Doctor when you have recurrent low-grade fever.
Thinning hair is frequently one of the initial lupus symptoms. The loss of hair is caused by skin and scalp inflammation. Many people lose hair by the clump with lupus. The hair dilutes slowly more often. Many people have also beard dilution, eyebrows, eyelids and other body hair.
Lupus can cause the hair to feel fragile, to break easily, and to appear to be a little ragged, gaining the name “lupus hair.” However, hair loss in those areas may be permanent if you develop lesions on your scalp.
A butterfly-shaped rash over the bridge of the nose and on both cheeses is one of the most obvious symptoms of lupus. Approximately 50 percent of lupus suffer from this rash. It can happen suddenly or after daylight. It can appear. Sometimes the rash comes up only prior to an inflammation.
In other areas of the body, lupus may also contribute to non-itchy lesions. Lupus can rarely lead to hives. Most people with lupus are prone to the sun and artificial light. Some of the fingers and toes are coloring.
Another potential symptom of lupus is the inflammation of the pulmonary system. The lung becomes inflamed and inflammation could spread to the lungs. The diaphragm can also be affected. All of these conditions can cause chest pain when you are trying to respire. Often referred to as pleuritary thoroughbred pain.
Lupus breathing problems can decrease the lung size over time. This condition is characterized by continuous chest pain and shortness of breath. Sometimes it is called disappearance (or lung syndrome shrinking). According to the Lupus Foundation of America, the diaphragmatic muscles appear to rise so weakly in CT scan images.
Lupus people can experience an inflammation of the kidney known as nephritis. The removal of toxins and waste from the blood makes it difficult for the kidneys to burn. Nephritis usually begins within five years of the start of lupus, according to the Lupus Foundation of America.
- swelling in the lower legs and feet
- having to urinate more frequently at night
- pain in your side
- high blood pressure
- blood in your urine
- darker urine
Inflammation, especially in the morning, can cause pain, rigidity and visible inflammation in your joint. At first, it can be mild and increasingly clearer. Joint problems can come and go, like other lupus symptoms.
See your doctor if pain medications that are over – the-counter (OTC) don’t help. Better treatment services can be available. However, your doctor should determine whether lupus or any other condition, such as arthritis, causes your joint problems.
In certain people with lupus, heartburn, acid reflux or other gastric disorders are often encountered. OTC anti-acids can treat mild symptoms. Try to decrease the size and avoid caffeine-containing beverages if you get a frequent flow of acid or heartburn. Even, after a meal don’t lie down. See your doctor for additional conditions if the symptoms persist.
Autoimmune thyroid disorder is not uncommon for people with lupus. The thyroid controls the metabolism of your body. A thyroid that is poorly controlled can affect vital bodies like the brain, heart, kidney and liver. It can also lead to a gain or loss of weight. Dry skin, body, and moodiness are other signs.
When a thyroid is underactive, the condition is known as hypothyroidism. Hyperthyroidism is caused by an overactive thyroid. Treatments to get your metabolism back on track are available.
You can feel dry mouth if you have lupus. Your eyes may also feel awful and dry. This is because people with lupus are developing a new autoimmune disorder called Sjogren’s syndrome. Sjogren causes malfunction of the glands that cause tears and saliva, and lymphocytes in the glands may accumulate. In some cases, the vagina and skin of women with lupus and Sjogren can also be dry.
The list of possible lupus symptoms is long. Other symptoms include oral ulcers, lymph nodes that are enlarged, muscle pain, chest pain, osteoporosis, and depression. Anemia, dizziness, and seizures are rare signs.
Luckily, not everyone gets all the symptoms. While there may be new signs, others often vanish.
