It is difficult to self-diagnose the symptoms of lupus, as these symptoms are common to hundreds of disorders – for example, headaches, joint pain, rashes, fatigue – do not mean you have lupus. If you suspect that you have many of the symptoms of lupus, you should go for a medical test, where definite blood ‘markers’ will reveal whether you do or do not have lupus.
