A Short Note On Chronic Inflammatory Disease And Its...

SLE is a chronic inflammatory disease that occurs when your body’s immune system attacks your own tissues and organs. There are different body systems effected such as joints, skin, blood cells, brain, kidneys, heart and lungs. Some may have only a few joints affected, where others may have multiple joints affected. The small joints of the hands and feet tend to be the most common affected. Joint stiffness is common and is usually worse in the morning. Mild joint swelling may occur but severe arthritis with joint damage is unusual. Skin is another area effected by SLE, patients experience a red rash which develops over the cheeks and nose. Other areas of skin exposed to sunlight (hands, wrists, etc) may also develop a rash. Some may experience reduced numbers of white blood cells or platelets and mild anemia is common. Occasionally inflammation of the brain can lead to epilepsy, headaches, migraines and other conditions. Mental health problems in SLE are fairly common and incl ude depression and anxiety. Although mild depression can be part of the disease itself, it can also be due to the patients reaction to having a serious illness. Around 1 in 3 people with SLE may develop inflammation of the kidneys, which can lead to the kidneys leaking protein and blood into the urine.
