Lupus is a chronic disease where the immune system produces antibodies that attack healthy cells and tissues. This results in inflammation in various body parts, damage, and pain. Since lupus affects different organs, different symptoms are associated with each individual. Normally, symptoms are extreme fatigue, swelling feet and legs, headaches, and chest pain. It is a lot like other diseases which is why it is quite hard to diagnose lupus. Doctors generally give medication that will reduce inflammation, minimize damage to the organs, and halt the immune system from overreacting. With proper treatment, people with lupus can live a long and healthy life but then again their lupus cannot be cured.
