There are several of us dealing with bursitis right now. It isn't a sign of Lupus but it is caused by inflammation. When it gets to the point that meds don't help steroid shots do. It can be very painful and yes, makes it hard to sleep.
As for the length of flares, they can go ffrom days to months with either fibro, Lupus or other AI diseases. Each of usbisndifferent and our bodies respond differently. If your doc offered steroid shots it might be your best bet.
Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.
