Lupus is a chronic inflammatory autoimmune disease that causes the body to attack its own healthy tissues and organs. Common symptoms include severe fatigue, joint pain, and unexplained fever. It is typically a difficult disease to diagnosis because symptoms mimic other illnesses. While there is no cure for lupus, symptoms may be controlled with certain medication and treatment.
Rowden Park is located at 1552 North Main Street in Lapeer.
