Do You Know the Top 5 Lupus Symptoms?

Posted on September 21, 2016

It’s been six years since we launched MyLupusTeam.com, the social network and online support group for people living with lupus. Since then we’ve gained more than 160,000 members and shared 100's of 1,000's conversations about living with lupus!

Throughout the year we will share themes we see come up time and again on MyLupusTeam that we think will help you better control your lupus. We know that lupus comes with hundreds of possible combinations of symptoms, many of which appear invisible to outsiders. Members have identified their top five lupus symptoms: fatigue, painful swollen joints, sleep problems, pain, and skin rashes. Three-quarters of members report experiencing depression and anxiety with their lupus.

The infographic below represents what members of MyLupusTeam have experienced as their most common lupus symptoms. All quotes have been anonymized.
