Signs of Churg-Strauss Syndrome tend to be general.
Depending on what organs of the body are affected symptoms can include:
- Flu-like symptoms including a fever and general feeling of being weak and tired
- Loss of appetite
- Weight loss
- Muscle pain
Causes and Risk Factors
It is not yet know what causes this condition. Many researchers think that abnormal responses of the body's immune system play a role in the disease.
Many people who have Churg-Strauss Syndrome also have a history of allergies.
Asthma or lung abnormalities sometimes occur a year or more before the more generalized, system-wide symptoms of Churg-Strauss appear.
