The Most Common Symptoms of Lupus


2. Oral & Nasal Lesions

The large majority of lupus suffers report the painful development of sores or lesions inside the mouth or nose. The mouth sores are very similar to canker sores, which can make eating, drinking, and speaking very painful. In the case of sores located within the nostrils, breathing may become restricted, and the patient may experience pain and tenderness when coming in contact with the lesions.

A related symptom can result from light exposure, or photosensitivity. Some people with lupus can develop lesions on their skin surfaces after prolonged periods in the sun, while others report that their skin problems seem to get worse after going outside on a sunny day. The link between lupus, skin lesions and sunlight isn’t fully understood by doctors, but the bottom line is that if you start to experience these symptoms, you should visit your physician for an explanation.
