Sometimes, I think a better question is "What are not
the signs of Lupus?" That is the big problem with
Lupus there can be so many symptoms that come and go
that quite often the Dr. labels you a nut case.
Many have body aches, sore joints, sore ribs,fatique
big time, fevers, cold hands, rashes, red face, dry
eyes and mouth, some have worse symptoms after being
out in the sunlight. I could go on and on. Sometimes
it can take years to pin down a diagnoses. They start
with blood tests and symptoms to diagnose it. Every
one experiences Lupus a little different. Do you
think you have Lupus? What are your symptoms?

Crystal,
A helpful place to "get started" is the Arthritis Foundation's website. Lupus is an autoimmune disease, and it's inter-related to a group of diseases that include Arthritis. [url="http://www.arthritis.org"]www.arthritis.org[/url]

There are many other health-related websites you can read up on. Just do a search on Lupus or SLE. If you suspect you have it, see your regular doctor - a simple blood and urine test can determine if you have any of the traits. And that's just the start.

Keep us posted. There are many of us that can offer lots of insight on how to navigate through the jungle of lupus.
