In brief: Variable-see below

Sle (lupus) can begin suddenly or slowly.
The most frequent early symptoms are fever, malaise, rash, joint pain, and joint swelling. Since this disease can affect the whole body, there can be symptoms from any body system, including heart, brain, lungs, kidneys, liver, eyes, and digestive tract.. If you or someone you know suspects lupus, please see a doctor very soon!
