The Mystery of Lupus


Identifying Lupus Despite Its Uniqueness

When looking back at your lupus diagnosis, it may be easy to blame the doctor for not getting it right the first time. Identifying lupus is largely done by ruling out the illnesses that could also be causing the same or similar symptoms. You may also be on different treatments to keep the variety of symptoms in check. Be sure to talk to your doctor and fully understand how the medications you’re on may interact with each other. Write down your medications beforehand and make notes about what to expect or what each medication is for. Doing so might even cause the doctor to realize that putting you on a different medication might be a better for how the rest of your medications will interact.
