It is really bad to have lupus. It may take very long time to make diagnosis. So far there is no certain cure for lupus but medicine and lifestyle changes can help control it.

The cause of lupus is not known. Lupus usually attacks your healthy cells and tissues and can damage your joints, skin, blood vessels and organs.  Anyone can get lupus but women are most at risk.

Common symptoms:-Joint pain or swelling, fever with no known cause, red rashes often on the face or muscle pain.
