This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Lupus is an autoimmune disorder -- that means immune system attacks the body cells for unknown reasons.
People with lupus can:
●Feel tired or weak
●Lose or gain weight
●Get a rash on their nose and cheeks shaped like a butterfly, especially if they spend time in the sun (picture 1)
●Lose some hair
●Get chest pain
●Have trouble breathing
●Have joint pain and stiffness
●Have swelling in the hands, feet, belly, or around the eyes
●Have urine that looks brown (tea-colored) or foamy
●Get sores in the mouth
●Get cold fingers or toes that turn pale or blue
Lupus can also make it hard to think clearly, and it can make people feel anxious and sad. That is partly because the disease attacks the brain, and partly because the disease is hard to deal with.
It was my pleasure to help you today.
