6 Subtle Signs of Lupus to Watch Out For

Lupus is an autoimmune disease that causes swelling (inflammation) and a wide variety of symptoms. Lupus affects everyone differently. Some people have only a few mild symptoms and others have many, more severe symptoms.

Symptoms usually start in early adulthood, anywhere from the teen years into the 30s. People with lupus generally experience flare-ups of symptoms followed by periods of remission. That’s why early symptoms are easy to dismiss.

Because early symptoms are similar to those of other conditions, having them doesn’t necessarily mean you have lupus. Early symptoms can include:

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