What is Lupus?
Lupus is an incurable immune system disease, where the body is essentially allergic to itself. It is a systemic disease that can affect any part of the body. The two major symptoms are joint/muscle pain and an extreme tiredness that won't go away no matter how much you rest.
It is estimated that 1.5 million Americans, 50,000 people in the UK and at least five million people worldwide, suffer from a form of lupus.
