    Will Discoid Lupus give you symptoms?
    For years I have suffered from extreme fatigue, constant headaches, anxiety, depression, constantly being sick. I found out last week that I have discoid lupus via skin biopsy. Could this be the cause of my troubles? I got blood take to test for SLE and I don’t have that.

    Thank you!
    will discoid then only affect the skin?

      Lupus is a disorder of the immune system. It affects different patients in different ways. It can also change over time in the very same patient.

      When UVA and UVB light hit the skin, they alter the DNA in the cells at the surface. Lupus patients make an antibody to this altered DNA. Normal people just wrinkle or get skin cancer over time. We get rashes. When the “allergic” reaction starts it can cause rashes all over the place.

      When antibodies label something as an invader, the immune system kicks in. If the antibodies label the wrong thing, the immune system will try to destroy whatever is labeled. The other immune cells notice the “label” and surround the target, releasing chemicals to digest it and causing the formation of huge molecules called immune complexes. The chemicals cause inflammation which causes rashes, inflammation and pain.

      The immune complexes or garbage are supposed to be processed in the spleen. Our immune “garbage” carriers are also confused and a tad bit lazy. They dump the complexes wherever they want. When the immune complexes get dumped somewhere else in the body-joints, kidneys, heart, lungs, skin, etc. They cause more pain, inflammation and damage.

      Plaquenil interrupts the process of cells surrounding the targets by changing the Ph on the surface. Plaquenil is a drug that lupus patients stay on for life if they have no bad side effects. It’s not like taking an ibuprofen and a headache going away. Plaquenil must be maintained in order to do its work.

      You do not say what your eye and liver problems are. Liver problems can be caused by many things-lupus, medications, other disease. Lupus can affect the eyes, and so can plaquenil. Very rarely, patients get what is called chloroquine retinopathy. If you get your eyes checked every six months and have a “field of vision” test you will be fine. The chances are very small that plaquenil will cause damage. If it does, the damage is very, very slow. The six month eye exam will pick it up. If you stop the drug, you stop the damage.

    I need help editing my research paper. I’m really bad at papers…..please help!?
    Well, its on lupus. I have the intro and two body paragraphs, and I still need to do the conclusion. So, I was wondering what I should change on my paper, and what I need to add..? I also have to do a powerpoint based on the paper, that should last a minimum of 5 minutes up to 15.

    The reason why I chose this topic was because my dad has lupus, and I wanted to know more about the topic. He was diagnosed with lupus when he was about fourteen years old. He still receives treatment for it by going in for blood tests and taking medication He has the most common form of lupus, Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE), in which causes the antibodies to react against his own normal tissue. He has arthritis and joint problems, but nothings wrong with his internal organs. To support my dad and other lupus survivors, my family and I all go to the lupus walk in honor of remembering the people who had lupus that died. The things the audience can expect to read in this paper are the different types of lupus, the symptoms, the treatment and cures.
    Lupus is the result of an unbalanced immune system that can be destructive to any organ in the body. It can be categorized into three groups: discoid lupus Erythematosus, systemic lupus Erythematosus, and drug-induced systemic lupus Erythematosus. DLE is always limited to the skin and is identified by a rash that may appear on the face, neck, and scalp. It can evolve into the systemic form, which can affect any organ or system of the body. Systemic lupus Erythematosus is more severe than discoid lupus and can affect almost any organ or organ system of the body. No two people with SLE will have identical symptoms. Drug-induced systemic Lupus Erythematosus occurs after the use of certain prescribed drugs. It is more common in men, because the drugs are given to them more often.
    Lupus is hard to diagnose because it has a wide range of symptoms involving various parts of the body; and symptoms differ from each person. Most people develop painful joints and a rash, but lupus may also cause fatigue, depressions, and kidney problems. The treatment of lupus varies from person to person because each person has different symptoms. Most people with SLE require a regular blood test to check for lupus flares. Medication is the primary medical treatment for lupus. Presently, there are no other methods available to treat lupus because there is nothing else that can have the necessary impact on the immune system. Currently, there is no cure for lupus, but with early diagnosis and proper medical treatment it can significantly help control the disease.

    thanks. it would be much appreciated!!!!
