Neuro. symptoms with Lupus?
mybdy posted:
Hi everyone. I was just diagnosed with Lupus yesterday and found this group. I have had severe middle back pain as well as arm and leg weakness. My primary doc. does not think this is related to the Lupus and I dont see a rheumy. until 2 more weeks. Does anyone here know if it is related to Lupus or not? I am scheduled for an MRI of my neck and back to see if anything is going on there, but any advice would be appreciated. Thanks

I would say congrats on the diagnosis but that doesn't sound right. I guess the best I could say is, thank goodness you now have a diagnosis. So many lupus sufferers don't know and bounce from doctor to doctor for years before they are diagnosed.

I've gone around a few times with joint pain and still suffer everyday. Am currently taking percocet and dilaudid/valium combo to help. Not taking the percocet and dilaudid together of course. Joint pain, in your legs, hips, shoulders and arms is quite common. It's like having arthritis without the joint swelling or deformity. Your back pain could be related but definitely have the MRI.

Lupus is one of those illnesses that can cause a lot of other issues all over your body and with various systems, blood, organs, skin and joints/bones.

Keep track of the aches and pains, noting what you are doing so when you go to see the doctor you will have a good explanation of what is happening and when.

Good luck
