Can lupus cause insomnia or can insomnia cause lupus?  As it turns out, both can be true! 

Dr. Donald Thomas, clinical rheumatologist and author of The Lupus Encyclopedia, shares his expertise and latest research regarding the complex relationship among lupus, sleep, rest and pacing oneself.  He will also describe lupus symptoms such as fatigue and insomnia, and the importance of sleep as part of a lupus treatment plan.
