Are There Any Early Signs of Lupus?

Q:
Are there any early signs of lupus?

A:
Generally speaking, lupus is an autoimmune condition causing inflammation.

Like the other diseases, it affects everyone differently, such as

  • Your symptoms might develop quickly, or they may come on slowly.
  • Besides, some people have only a few mild signs and others have many, more severe symptoms.
  • They can be permanent or flare up occasionally

In fact, long before lupus is diagnosed, things are going awry in the body. As a result, there may be some early signs for you to check up.

Early symptoms can include:

  • fatigue
  • fever
  • hair loss
  • rash
  • pulmonary problems
  • kidney problems
  • swollen joints
  • gastrointestinal problems
  • thyroid problems
  • dry mouth and eyes

Because early symptoms are similar to those of other conditions, having them doesn’t necessarily mean you have lupus. When you have the early signs above, you should turn to your doctor for diagnosis.
