In brief: Autoimmune disease
A disease in which your body makes antibodies against your own cells.
These antibodies cause destruction and inflammation which produce a wide variety of symptoms depending on what cells are being injured. There are some common symptoms and signs with the disease, but just about any symptom could be produced by lupus.
