Hi! Lupus is an autoimmune disease, a type of self-allergy, whereby the patient's immune system creates antibodies which instead of protecting the body from bacteria & viruses attack the person's own body tissues and there are many causes among which is serositis as well. Serotisis is an inflammation of the lining around the heart, lungs, and/or abdomen and is causing pain and shortness of breath.

Hey there zurawski,

as poster before me explained, lupus is auto immune disease that an cause damage any part body tissue, from internal organs, to skin or bones. So definitely, it can cause lung problems and lung problems do often manifest with breathing problems, including the shortness of breath. Since this is chronic condition, it's only probable that shortness of breath might somewhat improve.

There unfortunately is no cure for lupus, but there are treatments that are able to slow down the immune system attacks on the body and that way these forms of treatment make lupus and the symptoms it causes at least manageable. The success of the treatment is not same for every symptom, but there are anti inflammatory medications that might help with shortness of breath.
