It could be a number of things if you have lupus. Usually, kidney pain is not a symptom of lupus nepheritis. I have it and my kidneys never hurt, weird. You may have a bladder infection. Many lupus medication lower the immune system and can make you more apt to develop an infection.

Go to your doctor and let them know your pain. Be specific. It could also be muscle strain or lower back issues.

Good luck.
