23-year-old Nadia Tasher had never heard of lupus when she began suffering from unusual, persistent symptoms that would eventually lead to her visiting the doctor over 80 times in a year. Doctors believed she was a hypochondriac who was suffering from the symptoms of anxiety.

It can affect various parts of the body, but becomes most dangerous when it begins attacking the heart and lungs, potentially causing blood clots and in some instances, heart attacks.The first sign that something was wrong appeared four years ago, when Nadia started noticing a butterfly rash on her face - hair just feeling like it was getting thinner - began losing a lot of weight - experiencing severe joint pain. The doctors were so set on anxiety as a diagnosis, in fact, that they gave her a prescription of anti-anxiety medication which Nadia refused to take. Despite the fact she had even started doubting herself, Nadia continued to investigate her symptoms and eventually stumbled upon some information about lupus after an intensive Google search.
