Lupus has many symptoms which mimic other illnesses which is why it's quite tricky to diagnose. However the most common symptoms are joint/muscle pain, depression and exhaustion. Most lupus patients report having these symptoms at some time. Other symptoms do include rashes, headaches, pleurisy (lung problems), memory problems and stomach problems (lupus patients are intolerant of a lot of foods).
The majority of lupus patients are female between the ages of 15 and 45 although men and children do get lupus.
I would check out our website (www.lupus.org.uk) which has a list of all the symptoms and if you're still convinced it might be lupus you will need to consult a lupus specialist (they're usually rheumatologists) who will run tests.
Good luck.Source(s): www.lupus.org.uk

I don't know. That's a lot of problems. Some of your issues are basic, like everybody gets once in a while, but if you really have it all then go talk to a Dr.
Web MD has info to read. Here's a symptoms chart to start from:
