Lupus: What People Don't See (Infographic)

Posted on October 03, 2016

Below the surface, living with lupus can mean days spent in bed, missed appointments, and alternate days when we seem "fine." There's so much more to lupus than meets the eye. We know that lupus comes with hundreds of possible combinations of symptoms, many of which appear invisible to outsiders. Most people don't see the many symptoms we experience.

On, the social network and online support group for people living with lupus, members discuss the chronic nature of the disease and its hidden symptoms. MyLupusTeam has grown to reach 100,000 members and members have shared over 1 million conversations about life with lupus! Throughout the year we will share themes we see come up time and time again on MyLupusTeam. We chose the image of an iceberg to represent lupus symptoms because the life-impacting implications of a lupus diagnosis aren't obvious on the surface. Please share to spread lupus awareness!

This list is by no means exhaustive. What symptoms would you add?
