Lupus

Lupus is a chronic inflammatory disease and an autoimmune disorder that can affect various parts of the body. Primarily it affects the skin, joints, kidney, and brain. It causes the immune system to become hyper active. With lupus, the immune system confuses antigens with healthy tissue, attacking and killing both. Inflammation (which regularly plays a role of protection when dealing with an injured or infected body) causes destruction, thickening and scarring of healthy tissue. Symptoms include chronic pain (in all parts of the body), swelling (lymph nodes, hands, feet), mood changes, mouth sores, rashes, weight loss, anxiety, seizures, nausea weight loss and long term tissue damage.
