I was just diagnosed with lupus. Tonight I noticed brown spots in my mouth and on my tongue. Is this a symptom of lupus? I am scared because I do not know much about lupus. I do not know what to expect.

Hello monielive and Welcome -

While waiting for others to offer their experience, I wanted to pass this information along - Lupus Symptoms . It does mention mouth sores, but be sure to have your doctor take a look to get you the proper treatment for these symptoms.

Since the diagnosis of lupus is new to you please see our Lupus Health Center and Community TV: Speaking of Lupus with Christine Miserandino for much more helpful information.

Hopefully being informed will allow you to know what to expect and be less scared.

Let us know if this is helpful,
Elizabeth
