Most of us have experienced occasional joint pains and swelling, and in most cases this is not a matter of great concern, but these can also be early indications of lupus, or SLE. Early lupus symptoms can sometimes develop into other, more serious and debilitating conditions, leading in some cases to rheumatoid arthritis. It’s important, therefore, to take these early symptoms of lupus quite seriously, even if only to rule out the possibility of lupus. Early symptoms such as these are quite often simply what they appear to be: maybe you just over-exerted yourself at the gym or running for the bus, but there’s no harm in giving yourself some peace of mind. Catching early symptoms of lupus in women and men as soon as they appear gives you an edge in fighting the disease and can help you avoid pain and frustration down the road.
