Autoimmune disorder is a condition where one’s immune system recognizes even the healthy cells in the body as a foreign threat and attacks them.
It is uncertain in the medical world as to what causes this disorder. Recent studies show that it is most common in the African American and Hispanics ethnic groups. Diagnosing this disease can be a difficult process as there are over 80 different types of autoimmune disorder and many of them have similar symptoms. People who suffer from autoimmune disorder are likely to experience fatigue, muscle aches and a low fever. The classic sign of an autoimmune disease is inflammation, which can cause redness, heat, pain and swelling on various parts of the body.
A person suffering from autoimmune disorder can be affected in many different ways depending on the body part effected. Organs most commonly under attack by their own immune system include; liver, heart, skin, joints, kidneys, nerves and blood vessels. Patients are constantly on medication and require many sick days. As the disorder continues, individuals are likely to experience more joint pains, fevers and aces in different parts of the body. All of which make daily life for the individual much harder, as they are constantly in pain or under medication.
