Lupus Awareness Month Fact 19

Lupus fog is a general name for the cognitive impairments that often appear with lupus, including concentration and memory problems, confusion, and difficulty expressing yourself. These cognitive problems are often worse during flares. About half of lupus warriors report dealing with lupus fog. Lupus fog can be attributed to lupus affecting the central nervous system, made up of the brain and spinal cord. Lupus can also affect the peripheral nervous system, made up of nerve fibers that give skin and muscles power of feeling and movement.
