Lupus (also called Systemic Lupus Erythematosus) is a condition that affects the joints, muscles, skin and energy levels. Sufferers may be extremely tired, have ongoing joint and muscle pains/inflammation and skin rashes, as well as secondary symptoms such as headaches, temperatures, hair loss, mouth sores and light sensitivity. Early treatment and management are essential to improve quality of life, but there is no known cure.
Lupus is an ongoing condition that primarily flares up and settles down, so individuals may go varying periods of time without symptoms. Supplements and treatments that can help include anti-inflammatories, immune system boosters and medications like Naltrexone.
