The Most Common Symptoms of Lupus


Fever and Headache

A subtle symptom of Lupus would be fever and headache; and since these two conditions are often commonplace and caused by a number of medical issues, people often overlook it. At first, you might think you have a cold or be slightly under the weather. Maybe you pass off the headache as stress. Yet, the fever and headache won’t abate—and that’s when you have a problem. People who are diagnosed with Lupus will usually mention to their doctor that they have a chronic fever and migraines. However, doctors will often fail to figure out the root cause and will instead treat the symptoms instead.

If the fever and headaches are paired with other symptoms of Lupus, tell your doctor.
