Have you talked to your rheumatologist about this? I've had back pain as long as I can remember so don't know if it's related to lupus. What form of lupus do you have? Do it affect your kidneys? Maybe SaySusie can answer this. She's definitely the expert on this. Wish you luck and glad you're finding the support you need. Welcome!
