    Default Does lupus cause this?

    Gday folks, Its taken some time, but im very well near my ideal weight range after fighting lupus/steroids and whatnot. Always been naturally slim and athletic so it was a frustrating 3ish years. Im not sure if its the fact I have kidney lupus or so.....but ive picked up abit of a viral infection, and once again (as happens every time i get a bug) my stomach bloats like mad, and i chuck on a 2 or 3 kilos of holding fluid. WHY DOES THIS ALWAYS HAPPEN? is it the lupus?....3-4 days after my bugs gone i get back to normal but why on earth does this always happen???? any other similiar experiences?

    my weight can change about 4 or so kilos overnight, because of fluid.

    it is not unusual.

    especially if it is stomach issues.
    for me, the inflamation of the stomach is mainly fluid, and there is just a few feet of stomach to be inflammed lol.
    so it is actually quite natural that we look bloated.
