I have been having increased pain in my back and I told my physical therapy today so we worked on that a little by doing some exercises then she laid me out flat on my back with heating pads underneath. I have been feeling much better since I got home. I think it is from the lupus because lupus is a rheumatic disease that affects the connective tissue. I am sure it also possible that you could have strained it by lifting the wrong way or something like that. I would make a sick appointment with my primary care doctor and discuss this issue. My philosophy is that if it is a concern to me and its making me uncomfortable then I have the right to seek medical advice. Thats why we have doctors. So get it checked out. In the mean time try heating pads it can not hurt.

It is uncommon for lupus arthritis to occur in the spine, so it's possible this one isn't from lupus.

I hope you feel better soon,
