What are the most common lupus symptoms and early warning signs?

The symptoms of lupus are many and vary individually. No two patients experience identical symptoms. They can occur in any combination or independently of each other.

The severity of lupus also varies. While some patients have symptoms that appear suddenly and are severe, others have low level symptoms which may last for several years before a diagnosis. The course is very unpredictable, with flare ups that come and go.

During the initial stages of lupus, the most common lupus symptoms include extreme fatigue, joint pain, skin rashes and fever.

Lupus can affect many parts of the body. They include the skin, joints, hair, tendons, muscles, lungs, heart, kidney, blood, immune system, brain and nervous symptom.
