    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.
