Possible answer: Systemic symptoms are common. Fatigue, fever, and weight loss are typically present at some time during the course of the disease, occurring in 50 to 100 percent. Sometimes weight gain can occur from treatment w/prednisone, or kidney damage and salt retention. Lupus can affect a lot of organs such as the joints, mucus membranes, GI, lungs, heart, nerves, eyes, blood cells.
