I have SLE, because of it I've endured Kidney damage, Congestive heart failure.  Lupus can be (and in my case was) difficult to diagnose as the symptoms can mimic many other illnesses and the only way for a proper diagnosis is blood tests and xrays and it is very important that the patient disucesses everything with her doctors.
