Why Do Lupus Patients Suffer From Swelling Legs ﹠ Feet

2012-12-15 10:17

Lupus is a chronic immune disease. It may affect various parts of the body and swelling legs or feet is very common. However, the cause of this symptom may result from different triggers.


Many lupus patients feel fevered, painful joints and swellings. And when they wake up in the morning, the symptoms hurt more. Even walking may become a trouble in some severe cases. For anyone who has lupus, these symptoms are as bad or worse then they sound. Lupus itself can be a trigger of swelling legs and feet. However, it is never the only one. Affected kidneys or liver and medication abuse maybe the underlying causes.

Kidney Failure or Liver Problem

Lupus is a chronic inflammatory disease that can affect various parts of the body, especially the skin, joints, blood, kidneys and liver. Both the organs are important to remove waste products from the body. If these organs are damaged, excessive amounts of water, waste products will build up in the body, developing edema on hands, face, feet and legs etc.


Medicines cannot cure lupus (systemic lupus erythematosus, or SLE), but they can control many symptoms and often can prevent or slow organ damage. However, the adverse effects follow then. Most medications for lupus are steroids-related drugs which may take side effects of swellings.

The symptoms of swellings on feet and legs are not the only terrible thing for patient. Sometime not knowing what causes the bad condition is often the worst part. Going to the doctors and taking a further diagnosis before you choose any management is always a best choice.
