Lupus is a very common autoimmune disorder affects the immune system directly, and thus is something that significantly affect’s a person’s quality of life. Unfortunately, though, other people around the patient cannot physically see a disorder like lupus, and thus, it carries a very significant stigma when those who suffer with it try to raise awareness about the severity of the disease.

Lupus, like other autoimmune disorders and diseases, strongly affects a person’s quality of life, energy levels, mental state, physical feelings, and fatigue issues, without showing the effects visually on the outside of a person’s body. This makes a heavy stigma for those with autoimmune disorders, and makes those battling lupus forced to fight an uphill battle with significant symptoms.


Lupus and other autoimmune disorder causes are not entirely known. Some people assume environmental factors are at issue, though there is not at present a psychological or medical consensus on this. Others believe autoimmune disorders hold their background and base in the genetics and the human body relative to a person’s family tree. Again, though, there is not much definitively known about the causes of lupus here.

To help those suffering from lupus, it will go a long way if the medical community can definitively and certainly create a consensus about what causes and exacerbates lupus. It should be noted here that more women than men (by far) suffer from lupus, and all autoimmune disorders generally speaking. It also primarily affects middle-aged and elderly women, more than young people.


Symptoms of autoimmune disorders like lupus include incredible fatigue and difficulty in day-to-day activities. Energy levels typically lag extremely uniquely and differently than to those without the disorders. Symptoms certainly include the lack of desire and indifference to following goals and pursuing an energetic, high-energy life. Lethargy over an extended period of time is a significant sign that there may be something serious taking place with the patient.

Many people suffering from lupus and similar disorders also note symptoms of other varying intensities and experiences, including a loss of mobility and dexterity, shortness of breath, a possible link to food allergies, and more diseases ranging from fibromyalgia to other issues.

Lupus is a disorder that, while it cannot be seen, is extremely serious and must be taken seriously. Those who battle lupus are fighting an uphill battle every day to live a higher quality of life even with the disorder.
