How do you decipher Lupus joint/muscle pain from pain from the average aging process?
Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE)
I guess the major difference is that Lupus comes in flare-ups... If the pain is long-lasting, it might be due to aging I guess. Has your Lupus been under control recently?
Thank you pretty_nora. I have been getting flares more often. These usually involve more pain and issues with movement.
Lupus tends to affect joints on both sides, while other conditions might affect only one side. That was my rheumatologist's question when I asked him if it’s a sport injury or my lupus again
