Early Signs of An Autoimmune Disease

Most illnesses are ignored due to their mild symptoms. However, because an autoimmune disease can affect the organs in the body, it is important to understand the severity of the disease and recognize any the most common symptoms. For example, staying tired frequently, could be unintentionally linked to overworking, tiredness or getting over a cold. Realistically, this could be the first early sign of an autoimmune problem that needs to be addressed. The most common and misdiagnosed symptoms include:

  • Excessive prolonged tiredness
  • Flu like symptoms
  • Stiffness in the joints and muscle extremities
  • Chronic respiratory tract issues
  • Constant Urinary tract infection

What Parts of the Body Do Auto Immune Disorders Affect?

Sadly, auto immune disorders can affect vital organs in the body like the kidneys and lungs. The disease can be life-threatening if treatment is not received or the disease goes undetected until much later in life. Since this disease affects the body’s immune system from harmful bacteria, it often tricks the body’s immune system in attacking itself. This leaves the body unprotected from a real invasion like foreign substances and infections.
