Lupus is a complex disease with multiple possible causes. Genetics, environment, diet, medications, female hormones, and sunlight- and often a combination of these- are common triggers of the condition. Most people experience a mild version of lupus in which periodic flare ups are followed by periods without symptoms. In severe cases, symptoms can be debilitating.
Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is the most common type of lupus. While there is no one cause of SLE, environmental and lifestyle choices are likely large contributing factors.
Lupus symptoms and triggers vary widely because they affect so many parts of the body. And since not everyone with lupus has all of the symptoms, and some are similar to signs of arthritis, it can be difficult to diagnose.
Common Lupus Symptoms:
- Painful, swollen joints
- Chronic fatigue
- Chest pain
- Swelling in the hands, feet, and face
- Severe headaches
- Sensitivity to sunlight
- Hair loss
- Skin problems, most notably a butterfly-shaped rash across the cheeks and nose

Lupus Success Stories
I liked that I could actually see my own data, it was helpful to look back and see how far I’d come. I could see that the structure of my day had changed - I was waking at 7:15 am, with no need for a nap throughout the day. I was walking regularly and I also tracked my productivity.Randy
