Prescription medications have a lot of side effects that can even lead to worse problems. That is one of the main reasons why most people would go for natural cures to combat this disease. A common natural cure for the symptoms of lupus disease is willow, which is very effective in easing the muscle and joint pains that are usually experienced when you have lupus. Other than that, this is also an effective anti-inflammatory agent that is used for joint inflammations. The part of the willow tree that is used for this purpose is its bark. The bark extract is recommended to be taken in thrice a day in 5 ml amounts.

Certain practices can help you with your lupus disease so that you can prevent exacerbation. There are foods that you have to avoid, limit and increase. Totally avoid alfalfa since this can mimic the signs and symptoms such as flares. You will have to limit cow’s milk and beef products, taking them only in small amounts. As for the ones that you have to increase, consume fish in bigger amounts since these are rich in omega-3, the fatty acids that will help your body cope up with the illness. You can also take in some herbs and supplements such as flaxseed oil, black walnut, and other helpful supplements to help in the cure of these symptoms of lupus. Colloidal silver is also gaining attention in the cure of lupus since it is antibacterial, anti-arthritic and anti-fungal. If you have noticed, colloidal silver targets three symptoms of lupus.

The treatment of the symptoms involves home care too since this is very important for your recovery and for the maintenance of your health status. Stress management is something that you can do, because researches say that stress is actually a triggering factor for the exacerbation of lupus. Engaging in activities that are not too tiring is also encouraged to keep you mobilized, preventing your joints from losing their function. However, you have to keep that at a minimum because you easily get tired, and you won’t like the effects of exhaustion.

And because natural treatment methods are being preferred for the symptoms of lupus, you should take advantage of this recently developed natural cure for lupus. Be more informed of this treatment for symptoms of lupus by visiting

    Symptoms that are similar to Lupus?
    The girl that I love just recently came back from the doctor and is being tested for Lupus. She has the most common symptom of Lupus (Painful/swollen joints and muscle pain), and she is still fairly young at 24. She is worried that she may have the disease mainly because her cousin had discovered it at the same age. She is equally afraid that she may never be able to have kids (which is what brings her the most happiness in her life).

    What’s odd is that she doesn’t have many of the other symptoms of Lupus, such as fevers, butterfly rashes, sensitivity to the sun, hair loss, swollen glands, etc.

    Are there any other possible conditions that could share the same symptoms of lupus, but is not lupus?

    1. Linda R

      There are 4 types of lupus: cutaneous or discoid, systemic, drug induced and neonatal. The symptoms you listed are for systemic.

      Lupus is an unpredictable disease. Over the course of one’s life it can change in the way it affects the body. No one can predict that. There are no odds.

      Many other diseases have similar symptoms. That is why lupus is called the great imitator. Rheumatoid arthritis, polymyositis, fibromyalgia, thyroid disease and a host of others have the similar symptoms. There is no definitive lab test for lupus, although the majority of lupus patients will have a positive ANA at some point, other things like pregnancy, can cause the same result. Some lupus patients have a false positive for syphllis.

      The majority of lupus patients, if they follow their treatment regimen and are proactive, can live a normal life span and have children. However, lupus pregnancies should be treated as high risk and many will result in premature births. If she has antiphospholipid anitbody syndrome, a clotting disorder, pregnancy will be much more difficult.

      If she does have lupus, it’s not the end of the world. She may have lupus but lupus doesn’t have her.

      Best wishes.

    Do I have Lupus or Lyme disease?
    I have had a whole lot of different symptoms in the past 2 years, and drs have dismissed them as anxiety, stress, migraines, me just being a hypocondriac, and bunches more.

    shooting pains in head
    bells palsy, last year
    preasure in head and behind eyes
    facial spasms
    dry mouth

    i know theres more i just cant think of them now.

    does any one think these symptoms could be due to either disease? and he so how do i get someone to take me seriously?

      There is no way to sift though this list of symptoms and come up with a diagnosis. All of the Lyme disease symptoms are on the list, but Lyme disease can only account for a few of your symptoms. Here’s the dilemma i see when looking at this list: there isn’t any single condition that causes all of these symptoms, many of the symptoms have dozens of possible causes, nearly all of these symptoms occur on occasion in people that are completely healthy, and a couple of the symptoms occur only in people with certain psychological or psychiatric disorders. Making things even harder for the doctors is that you are probably adding up every single problem that comes along and bundling unrelated symptoms into one gigantic problem that doesn’t really exist as a single problem – Its far more likely that there are a couple of smaller problems with different causes.

      Unless you can separate these symptoms into groups of things that are truly related to each other, no doc in the world will be able to help you. Your fate rests in your own hands and you know what you feel better than anyone else. Distinguish between symptoms that always occur at the same time from things that never occur at the same time, and symptoms that occur randomly. Try to look for circumstances where there appear to be logical cause and effect relationships. You have to be a little bit of a detective.

      You also need to realize that the doctors are probably taking you seriously when they have diagnosed you as a hypochondriac or as having a general anxiety disorder or some other psychological problem. A diagnosis of this nature doesn’t mean the doctors think you are imagining these problems or making them up – it’s well known that certain psychological or psychiatric conditions cause many of these health problems, and the problems are real. This is not the same thing as saying that the problems are all in your head – what they may be saying is that the best way to unravel all of the problems is to start by eliminating psychological and psychiatric causes. Its ironic, but it looks to me like you are dismissing the doctor’s diagnosis because you think they are dismissing your symptoms. Its obvious that this is an endless loop that goes no where.

      My advice, which isn’t worth much, is to humor the doctors for a while and follow their advice even if its just to prove them wrong. You have nothing to lose (health wise) by approaching this matter as if it is all caused by an anxiety disorder or one of the other diagnoses that you have dismissed.

    Lossing patches of hair, Secondary Syphilis, Lupus, RR?
    My boyfriend has been losing patches of his hair in different spots. Some very large and some small. He finally went to the doctors today, and the doctor says that he may either have secondary syphilis, which is a sexually transmitted disease that can hide for years before showing any symptoms, or Lupus, or even RR. All three of these rarely have this symptom he has, and he has no other symptoms of any of them. I think his doctor is fooling him, and hes going to test him for all of them. I forget what they call this hair loss, but from what I’ve read, it can be a cause of something else, or it could have no other cause but may be hereditary. I would like to know if anyone knows any information on this, and what you might think of what the doctor is saying about this?
    I know what the actual hair loss is called, just couldnt remember the name. As for trusting the doctor…That maybe be expected in other areas, but the doctors here have a reputation for giving the wrong diagnosis. They cant tell a broken arm with a bone sticking out of your skin, and a scratch if that helps.

    Please help me figure out what is wrong with me… Could it be Lupus?
    I’m trying to figure out what I have. My doctor is terrible and doesn’t believe anything I say. All he does when I ask for a test is say “You don’t need that test.” He thinks everything is all in my head for some reason but it’s not. I’ve been feeling ill for about 4 years now.

    My symptoms are:

    On and off loss of appetite and nausea.
    Extreme fatigue.
    Dizziness (Once it felt like the whole room was spinning – it was terrifying.)
    Sensitivity to light (Camera flashes make me feel nauseous.)
    Weakness (It’s hard to hold on to things etc.)
    My toes turn purple on and off (They look like Zombie toes….)
    My cuts don’t heal well and almost always leave a scar, even small cuts.
    Hair loss (Alopecia areata)
    Pale skin
    Anxiety (I shake alot when I’m nervous)
    Shortness of breath
    Change of eye sight (I can’t focus on things as quickly and the back of my eyes feel strained)

    I just found it weird that Lupus symptoms include the purple toes and hair loss…no other disease has both of them together…

    and I have 2 autoimmune disorders, so I’m thinking it must be an autoimmune disease I have

    The only thing is I don’t have joint pain…my knee’s do hurt sometimes but not enough to bother me. And I’ve never had the common “Butterfly rash” that some people with Lupus have.

    Everyone thinks its Diabetes but I’ve been checked for that.

    Could I have Lupus without the pain?

      I honestly can’t tell you what you have because I am not a doctor, however I am a mother. I would go to another doctor till you get answers. 🙂

    Symptoms for 7 months, no diagnosis. Excessive hair loss, muscle pain, swollen nodes.?

    I`m a 19 year old female who`s been experiencing a series of symptoms for the past 7 months that doctors have been unable to diagnose.

    Firstly, my hair has been falling out and as you can imagine, this has been very emotionally stressful. Since about 7 months ago, I`ve lost more then 75% of hair from all over my head. The hair loss is not patchy, but has been thinning all over. I used to have long, extremely thick and beautiful hair, and now its almost gone. The hair loss is not localized to my head as I’ve even noticed that the hair on my legs and in my pubic area have barely been growing back after shaving. I did see a dermatologist and he said that I must have an underlying autoiumme disease that’s causing the hair loss. He suspects lupus or a related disease, but as of yet, blood tests have shown no irregularities.

    Since around the same time my hair has been falling out, Ive noticed that the lymph nodes in my neck have been swollen. Sometimes they are red and sensitive (especially after drinking alcohol or smoking) but usually they’re painless. I’ve also been experiencing a lot of joint/muscle pain and stiffness. Some days it gets really bad and I can barely move, even typing/writing is difficult because the muscles in my hands are so stiff. I feel like every muscle and joint in my body is inflamed. I’m only 19 and I’m having as hard of a time moving around as my 55 year old mother with MS.

    Lastly, (and I’m not sure if this is related at all) my skin has been really dry and especially itchy. I’m not sure if I’ve noticed any rashes, but I have noticed some redness (light red spots) randomly on my skin.

    My family doctor did a thorough blood analysis and everything came back normal. There is no sign of vitamin deficiency, my thyriod was normal, no diabetes, my blood cell count was normal, kidney/liver function was normal, and I’m clean for STD’s/STI’s. I really don’t know where to go from here and im terrified that if I don’t find out whats wrong, I’m going to go bald.

    Does anyone know what these symptoms indicate? Any advice as to what I should get tested for/where I should go from here would be great.

    Thank you in advance for the help!
