Anybody with Lupus Nephritis get Kidney pain?
Don't have Lupus there, but I get severe pain with my Kidney infections.
How do you know that the lupus is attacking there? Which tests say what?
Sorry to be so ignorant?
Urine tests, and a kidney biopsy. Also the fact that im leaking so much protein into the urine. But the most specific and accurate findings are from a kidney biopsy.

hi hating that pred,
i have kidney involvement, and have been seeing a nephrologist for several years. they have been finding blood in my urine since 1996, but just keep watching my levels very closely. there is no pain associated with lupus nephritis. I experience a lot of pain in my kidney area, but the drs. say that is the inflamation around my kidney, not the kidney itself.
i have been told that the biopsy is not a pleasant test, so i have elected not to get it done unless my counts get really bad.
share a smile today
