A 33-year-old female asked:
Is orthostatic intolerance common in people lupus or sjogrens?

Uncommon: No specific increased risk of orthostasis was mentioned in standard descriptions of these illnesses, however, autoimmune illnesses can cause edema and third spacing with flare-ups, which will increase the risk of orthostasis greatly. I hope that helps
