Lupus is hard to diagnose. It is a chronic (long-term) disease that can cause inflammation and pain in any part of your body. It’s an autoimmune disease, which means that your immune system — the body system that usually fights infections — attacks healthy tissue instead. 90% of people who are diagnosed with lupus are women, and people of color are 2-3 times more likely to be diagnosed.
