    Hi,

    Are you talking muscle pain? I use flexeril daily for neck muscle pain. You should have your doctor look at your arm - especially if its just one arm hurting as I don't know of lupus just attacking one arm.

    Hope you get some relief and answers soon!

    Thanks Lisa! It is both arms, but the right is the worse. Yes, I am taking Flexeril but it doesn't seem to be helping. It feels more like nerve or tendon pain than muscular.
