There Are Over 80 Types Of Autoimmune Disorders And Most Of Them Share Similar Symptoms
Psoriasis, scleroderma, hepatitis, rheumatoid arthritis, alopecia, and Addison’s disease are all types of autoimmune diseases.
The immune system in your body protects it from a variety of diseases and infections. However, in people with autoimmune disorders or diseases, their immune system unknowingly attacks and destroys the healthy cells in their body.
Since there are a number of different diseases that fall into this category and share common symptoms, it becomes difficult for healthcare providers to isolate the symptoms and diagnose the disease. The first symptoms to become apparent in most people are usually basic fatigue, low fever, and muscle aches.
There is one thing that may point towards a possible case of autoimmunity – Inflammation that causes pain, swelling, and redness.
