Is it pos­si­ble to have de­bil­i­tat­ing fa­tigue and have nor­mal labs and other symp­toms are min­i­mal? Cum­ming, MA

Wellness Update - - Fatigue And Lupus -

Yes, we def­i­nitely see this oc­cur where fa­tigue is the main, or only, ac­tive symp­tom of a per­son’s oth­er­wise-well­con­trolled lu­pus. It is a re­minder that labs do not al­ways tell the whole pic­ture and there is much about lu­pus we still need to un­der­stand bet­ter. Up to 80% of pa­tients with lu­pus iden­tify fa­tigue as one of their pri­mary symp­toms and the fa­tigue can be quite se­vere.
