    Terrible arm pain

    Why does Lupus cause horrible arm pain? Any good treatment suggestions for relief would be appreciated!

    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!
