Do you suffer from an invisible illness?
While some health issues are visible to the outside world, many people face chronic conditions that don’t have externally visible signs or symptoms—also known as invisible illnesses.
One such illness is the autoimmune disease lupus. lupus is a chronic (long-term) disease in which the body’s immune system becomes hyperactive and attacks healthy tissue, leading to inflammation and pain. Because each person is different, lupus can look different and present various symptoms from case to case. Commonly affected areas include the joints, skin, kidneys, blood cells, brain, heart, and lungs. Symptoms vary but can include:
– joint pain
There’s so much that many people don’t know about lupus. Even though it affects 1.5 million people in the U.S., many Americans have no clue what it is unless they are living with it themselves or have family members suffering from it. Thus, it is “”invisible””.
