Common Conditions Related to Lupus

Joint pain

Joint pain is a common problem experienced by lupus patients, especially the small joints of their hands and feet. The pain shifts from one joint to another. Joint complications in some people with lupus alter the shape of their joints. Lupus patients experience joint stiffness, which is worse in the morning after a night of not moving during sleep. Try showering with warm water. If it fails, use over-the-counter drugs or something like prednisone.
