Nowadays lupus is one of the most dangerous disease as well as one of the most challenging diseases. But we are living in a scientific era. So there are lots of scientific and natural treatments which are really effective way to cure the disease.

Now what is Lupusc

Lupus is chronic inflammatory disease which attacks our immune system. Not only that the main perspective of the disease is to attack our tissues as well as organs. No doubt this inflammation can affect the different part of our body, such as skin, joints, blood cells, kidneys, lungs and heart. And the most important thing is that, until the disease is fully understood the chance of surviving is not very good. But if once diagnosed and treated the disease properly, he or she can live a very normal life easily. Thats why proper diagnosis is very necessary to indentify the disease.

Lupus is a very challenging chronic disease. Most of the symptoms of this disease can hit you very suddenly or they can do just the opposite and develop very slowly. Not only that they are very mild or extremely severe. If you develop the disease and it is being treated you may still have the episodes that are referred to as flare ups where the symptoms will suddenly get worse, improve and then may totally disappear. The natural treatments are the most effective way for the disease.

Symptoms of the disease:

The symptoms of the chronic disease lupus is depends on which part of your body your immune systems has attacked. There are many symptoms that seem to be quite common with the disease. Among of them fatigue and fevers are the most common symptoms. Apart form that weight loss or weight gains in some cases. On the other hand joint pains are also very common with the most forms of this disease. Sometime it will affect your checks as well as the bridge of your nose. Skin lesion will also appear in most of the cases. And it is believed that these lesions are caused direct exposure to sunlight. Mouth sores, chest pains, shortness of breathe dry eyes; easy bruising, memory losses are the symptoms of lupus.

Causes of this disease:

Lupus is an autoimmune disease. But there is still not a clear understanding exactly what the causes are of it. But definitely it is understood that when your immune system is triggered to attack bacterial and viral invasion.

Treatments:

Definitely there are several treatments for the lupus chronic disease. And no doubt they are quite effective. But they have some serious side effects. The first is non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs like, Aleve, Mortin, or other drugs. Apart from that fish oil supplement that contain omega-3falty acid, which are also very effective controlling the inflammation. And the only side effect with fish oil is an occasional belch.

    Is it normal for people with autoimmune diseases ie lupus to have irregular periods?
    I’ve been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease (symptoms of lupus) and fibromyalgia and sometimes I get really irregular periods where I have my cycle twice in a month. I’ve also had tests done where I wasn’t even on my period where they would find a tiny bit of blood in my urine but I wasn’t even actually on my period but the docs kind of passed it off as not that big of a deal. I’d definitely like to go to a good gyne doctor but none of my docs have been willing to get me a referral even when I’m having some problems. Anyways what I would like to know is if these kinds of things are normal in autoimmune diseases.

      Irregular periods are normal for everyone. Spotting between periods happens to everyone.

      In school they teach us the period will come every 28 days, perfectly, it’ll go 4-7 days, and stop. And then 28 days later, the same routine.

      What they don’t tell us is that’s the ideal scenario. The truth is that it’s unusual to have a perfect period without spotting. Also, as you get older and your hormones change, so does your body’s response to the changing hormones and your cycle can change too. There is nothing constant about the way a woman bleeds.

    Tourette like symptoms from a reaction to medication. How to get it under control?
    Hi, I have been diagnosed with stage 1 chronic kidney disease and I also have some lupus symptoms. I take a ton of medication and I believe I’m having a very bad reaction due to them. Here are my symptoms…

    – Jerking, involuntary movement
    – Very detailed oriented when I speak (I explain everything even for the simplest sentences.)
    – Easily upset
    – involuntary movement of my mouth

    Does anyone know what type of reaction this is called?

    1. Melody

      This sounds like tardive dyskinesia…a disorder that causes involuntary muscle contractions that can result in involuntary movements and postures in various parts of the body, particularly chewing or lip-smacking movements of the mouth, jaw and face.

      It can be caused by dopamine agonists– which include psychiatric drugs, and some anti-nausea drugs.

      You need to talk to your doctor about this. the involuntary movements can become permanent.

      How do I know? I have tardive dyskinesia myself, though mine effects my entire body, which makes it impossible for me to walk.

      You need to talk to your doctor about this, ASAP. You don’t want to ignore this. It needs to be adressed before it gets worse…or possibly permanent.

    1. hello

      Lupus is one of many disorders of the immune system known as autoimmune diseases. In autoimmune diseases, the immune system turns against parts of the body it is designed to protect. This leads to inflammation and damage to various body tissues. Lupus can affect many parts of the body, including the joints, skin, kidneys, heart, lungs, blood vessels, and brain. Although people with the disease may have many different symptoms, some of the most common ones include extreme fatigue, painful or swollen joints (arthritis), unexplained fever, skin rashes, and kidney problems.

      At present, there is no cure for lupus. However, lupus can be effectively treated with drugs, and most people with the disease can lead active, healthy lives. Lupus is characterized by periods of illness, called flares, and periods of wellness, or remission. Understanding how to prevent flares and how to treat them when they do occur helps people with lupus maintain better health. Intense research is underway, and scientists funded by the NIH are continuing to make great strides in understanding the disease, which may ultimately lead to a cure.

      Each person with lupus has slightly different symptoms that can range from mild to severe and may come and go over time. However, some of the most common symptoms of lupus include painful or swollen joints (arthritis), unexplained fever, and extreme fatigue. A characteristic red skin rash-the so-called butterfly or malar rash-may appear across the nose and cheeks. Rashes may also occur on the face and ears, upper arms, shoulders, chest, and hands. Because many people with lupus are sensitive to sunlight (called photosensitivity), skin rashes often first develop or worsen after sun exposure.

      Common Symptoms of Lupus

      * Painful or swollen joints and muscle pain
      * Unexplained fever
      * Red rashes, most commonly on the face
      * Chest pain upon deep breathing
      * Unusual loss of hair
      * Pale or purple fingers or toes from cold or stress (Raynaud’s phenomenon)
      * Sensitivity to the sun
      * Swelling (edema) in legs or around eyes
      * Mouth ulcers
      * Swollen glands
      * Extreme fatigue

      Symptoms can range from mild to severe and may come and go over time.

      Other symptoms of lupus include chest pain, hair loss, anemia (a decrease in red blood cells), mouth ulcers, and pale or purple fingers and toes from cold and stress. Some people also experience headaches, dizziness, depression, confusion, or seizures. New symptoms may continue to appear years after the initial diagnosis, and different symptoms can occur at different times. In some people with lupus, only one system of the body, such as the skin or joints, is affected. Other people experience symptoms in many parts of their body. Just how seriously a body system is affected varies from person to person. The following systems in the body also can be affected by lupus.

      * Kidneys: Inflammation of the kidneys (nephritis) can impair their ability to get rid of waste products and other toxins from the body effectively. There is usually no pain associated with kidney involvement, although some patients may notice swelling in their ankles. Most often, the only indication of kidney disease is an abnormal urine or blood test. Because the kidneys are so important to overall health, lupus affecting the kidneys generally requires intensive drug treatment to prevent permanent damage.

      * Lungs: Some people with lupus develop pleuritis, an inflammation of the lining of the chest cavity that causes chest pain, particularly with breathing. Patients with lupus also may get pneumonia.

      * Central nervous system: In some patients, lupus affects the brain or central nervous system. This can cause headaches, dizziness, memory disturbances, vision problems, seizures, stroke, or changes in behavior.

      * Blood vessels: Blood vessels may become inflamed (vasculitis), affecting the way blood circulates through the body. The inflammation may be mild and may not require treatment or may be severe and require immediate attention.

      * Blood: People with lupus may develop anemia, leukopenia (a decreased number of white blood cells), or thrombocytopenia (a decrease in the number of platelets in the blood, which assist in clotting). Some people with lupus may have an increased risk for blood clots.

      * Heart: In some people with lupus, inflammation can occur in the heart itself (myocarditis and endocarditis) or the membrane that surrounds it (pericarditis), causing chest pains or other symptoms. Lupus can also increase the risk of atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries).

    What exactly is the disease Lupus?
    How do you get it? Is it genetic? Is it a terminal disease? What are the symptoms? I don’t have it, but I hear about it quite a lot and I’m wondering just what it is exactly. TIA! Have a good one 🙂

    1. Cognitive Dissonance

      Lupus is the technical name for infection from the werewolf virus.

      It is usually contracted by shared bodily fluids, usually through bites, with canis lupus, a dog that’s usually wild although they have been known to pose as house pets.

      Common symptoms include a rash from itching with a hind leg, monthly bloodlust culminating at the full moon and skeletal/muscular pains as the body transforms to the disease’s true canine form.

      This disease cannot be cured but can be treated with drugs to slow the transformation, tranquillisers and monthly lockdown.

    What are the symptoms of parkinsons, graves , lupus and addison disease?
    Can these illnesses start suddenly or gradually over many years while the person does not feel any symptoms

    Thanks

      These disease can take years to be recognized as the symptoms can develop slowly in Lupus, Addison’s and Parkinson’s disease. Grave’s disease can be preceded by a traumatic event. As you can see, there are many common symptoms so differential diagnoses become problematic.
