Watch Out For These Lupus Symptoms

Lupus can affect every part of your body. Personally, when I had flares in the past, my symptoms were pleuritis (that intense chest pain when taking deep breaths), joint and muscle pain and stiffness, malar rash, and fatigue. Since changing my diet and lifestyle, I'm glad to say, I don't experience those symptoms anymore!

There are symptoms that are well-known for Lupus like the malar rash or butterfly rash. This red rash appears over your cheeks and nose.

However, there are MANY ways Lupus can affect your body, read the list below to see if Lupus has been affecting you in any unexpected ways:

Heart: Chest pain

Difficulty breathing

Rapid and/or irregular heartbeat
