If you are not feeling well and something feels “off,” take the Could It Be Lupus? interactive questionnaire. If your symptoms are related to lupus, or you are at risk for lupus you should talk with your health care provider about it.
It doesn’t have to be just how you feel today – if you experienced symptoms a week ago, month ago, write it down.
If you’ve been experiencing symptoms (one or more) it’s time to schedule an appointment to talk to your health care provider. Your health care provider will help you understand your symptoms and figure out the best care plan. You can use this symptom tracker to start keeping tabs on what you’ve been going through.
There isn’t one test that can diagnose lupus. It’s important to know your body and make that appointment. Remember – the earlier you get diagnosed, the better it is for your long-term health. There are specialists (called rheumatologists) who focus on autoimmune diseases and can help develop a plan specifically for you.
Check out this guide to help prep for your appointment.
