Hi All! I know aches and pains are a part of lupus but I am still confused at what is lupus related and what isn't. Do you all get stiff and achy one day and then be almost fine the next? Do you all get more achy on one side and nothing on the other? I know some of my aches are due to being active and a tilted pelvis (the left side has more pain and aches than the right). My left hip is almost always in pain. Just not sure if the aches is age and exercise related or because of lupus. It seems that I keep getting worse and I was Ok for about 4 years. Doc keeps adding medicine and thing get better and then boom, back to being tired and achy. I am very lucky that I can maintain a pretty normal life and have no organ involvement but being in pain and having trouble getting up is getting very old.
