What Are the Symptoms of Arthritis Caused by Lupus?

Q:
What are the symptoms of arthritis caused by lupus?

A:
One typical symptom of lupus is joint pain.

Lupus occurs because of an overactive immune system, which may lead to inflammation with painful, swollen joints.

Joint pain can be discomfort, pain or inflammation arising from any part of a joint. Most commonly, however, joint pain refers to arthritis, which is inflammation or pain from within the joint itself.

Joint pain can be mild, causing soreness only after certain activities, or it can be severe, making even limited movement, particularly bearing weight, extremely painful.

See your doctor if you develop an unexplained rash, ongoing fever, persistent aching or fatigue.
