I was diagnosed with Lupus in Feb 2013 so everything is still relatively new to me. I know that lupus can affect your mouth ie canker sores etc but I have had a spot on the roof of my mouth that feels like a burn. I woke up this morning and now my gums are also swollen. Could this be from the Lupus?

I have had lupus for over 10 years now and right before a flair I usually have the mouth sores and slightly swollen gums. Watch your symptoms for the next couple of weeks and keeping a diary to report back to your doctor is important.
