Systemic lupus erythematosus (commonly known as SLE or lupus) is an chronic autoimmune disease affecting many parts of the body, like the skin, joints, and organs, through inflammation. 

Mymee is proven to help reduce lupus symptoms.

Lupus Symptoms

The impact of lupus on the body is widespread and symptoms range in severity between periods of flare-ups and remission. Management of lupus is critical; manifestations of lupus can include stroke, cardiovascular issues, and renal inflammation. Most lupus patients report pain as the most difficult aspect of the disease.

Lupus symptoms are similar to those of many other conditions, contributing to an average of six years for the receipt of a lupus diagnosis. Many people with lupus are also initially incorrectly diagnosed, further delaying care. Recognizing symptoms could help to begin treatment for lupus more quickly.

Among the most common lupus symptoms are: 

  • 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
