Long QT syndrome

Long QT syndrome refers to a disorder of the heart whereby the rhythmic activity of the heart muscle is disturbed, potentially causing rapid and uncoordinated heartbeats. This erratic behaviour of the heart muscle in long QT syndrome may cause fainting and in extreme instances, lead to death. Known causes of long QT syndrome include genetic disorders and numerous medications. Treatment of long QT syndrome therefore often includes the avoidance of specific medications, limiting physical activity and taking medications that regulate the heart’s rhythmic activity. In some cases of long QT syndrome an implanted pacemaker may also be required.

Lupus erythematosus causes fever, painful joints, fluid in lung spaces with pain, kidney infections, cardiac problems, and neurological problems amongst a few. Where ever you have connective tissue you have the potential to have inflammation. When having lupus erythematosus a common symptom is the butterfly rash which is a red patch found on the face.
