If you suspect that you do have an autoimmune disease, the first thing you would probably do is to go to your doctor. Unfortunately, most doctors only treat the symptoms and not the root cause of the disease. In this case, you will have to take medications, including immunosuppressant, steroids, or anti-inflammatory medicines. While these treatments are effective at reducing the pain or the symptoms listed above, they don’t address the real cause of why your immune system is behaving improperly.
This is why the best thing you should do now is to try to know the underlying cause behind the disease. This solution is better as this works effectively for the long term unlike consuming drugs that only have effects for the short term. Additionally, it is not recommended that you take immunosuppressant for extended period of time because this can increase your risk of acquiring much worse infections and can even lead to cancer.
