Constant muscle cramping/locking up...mainly the calves and fingers...and this is the worst...ok, lets say youre standing or walking, all of a sudden you hear an internal cracking noise from your knee and fall to the ground. You know you didnt break or sprain your knee because its not excrutiating pain, but its painful enough to maybe make you want to cry. It eventually goes away but there is a throbbing sensation for a few days. Well its happened to me twice now, just falling to the ground and hearing like a crack in my knee...is it the meds or lupus?

I have the cramping also and have fallen down stairs because of it. It get so bad that I can't walk. This usually happens a week before I get my period. I am now going through menopause so who knows when it will happen.
