Health Tip: Coping With Lupus

Health Tip: Coping With Lupus

09/16/13

(HealthDay News) -- Lupus is an autoimmune disease that can cause fatigue and fever to skin rashes and joint pain. There is no cure, but a healthy lifestyle can help control symptoms.

Womenshealth.gov offers this advice about living with lupus:

  • Pace yourself, and avoid pushing yourself too hard. Take breaks when necessary, and get plenty of rest.
  • Find ways to reduce stress, such as by exercising, socializing and relaxing.
  • Seek companionship from friends, family and a support group.
  • Talk to your doctor if you struggle with lupus, or worry that you may be becoming depressed.
  • Learn as much as you can about lupus, and take more control of your disease.
