This results in symptoms such as inflammation, swelling, and damage to joints, skin, kidneys, blood, the heart, and lungs. Under normal function, the immune system makes proteins called antibodies in order to protect and fight against antigens such as viruses and bacteria. Lupus makes the immune system unable to differentiate between antigens and healthy tissue. This leads the immune system to direct antibodies against the healthy tissue - not just antigens - causing swelling, pain, and tissue damage.The signs and symptoms of lupus that you experience will depend on which body systems are affected by the disease. The most common signs and symptoms include: Fatigue and feverJoint pain, stiffness and swellingButterfly-shaped rash on the face that covers the cheeks and bridge of the noseSkin lesions that appear or worsen with sun exposureFingers and toes that turn white or blue when exposed to cold or during stressful periods (Reynaud’s phenomenon)Shortness of breathChest painDry eyesHeadaches, confusion, memory loss Lupus is still a relative mystery to medical researchers. An exact cause of the disease remains unknown, and many still debate whether lupus is one disease or the combination of several similar diseases. There is still no cure.
