I am fairly new here and diagnosed with lupus. Over the last few months I have become increasingly fatigued. I need to speak with my doctor about this and plan on doing so, but I researched and it says fatigue is a common symptom of lupus.
Funny thing is, I have been diagnosed for about 2 years and only in the last 6 months have I begun to feel fatigued.
Has anyone else experienced that? What do you do for fatigue? Do you seek a doctor for it?
Thank you in advance.

@Kgrobe What do you mean by neurological manifestations?
@lupus38 I have severe headaches, confusion, vision disturbances, extreme dizzines and balance issues. Fatigue comes along with it.
@Kgrobe it’s not unusual to have neurological symptoms with Lupus, however it’s also not unusual to have more than one autoimmune disease ... maybe check in with a neurologist ?
@Kgrobe yes those symptoms, especially headaches (hell I call them migraines), vision issues, and dizziness. Lupus is an automimmune disease so it will affect our nervous system.
@lupus38 migraine is a much better term. They are excruciating!
My daughter has started having itchy breakouts on her face,arms and back. Has anyone else expeienced this?
@Biggness hi ,
ive had many many different types of rashes including the type you describe. Always stay covered with long sleeves, pants (yes, even in summer ... lightweight pants are easy to find) and hat and sunscreen. I’ve always gotten that type of rash from sun exposure, however rashes can come on at anytime for any reason.
@LynndMS thanks. I atleast feel better to know others have experienced too. i guess it just another thing to deal with. She is really catching it.
I've been experiencing worsening bouts of fatigue and exhaustion. I have had Lupus over 14 years and also have Fibromyalgia and Sjogren's. I've spoke to my doctor and we've tried few different things. nothing really seems to help much any more .
Has anyone experience night sweats ? my night sweats are so bad that I have to change my shirt twice a night and have difficulty sleeping for that reason. Is that a lupus symptom ??
