Crystal:

Your leg pain sounds like sciatica, which is caused by nerve compression putting pressure on your sciatic nerve. Unless it's very severe, you can help it by using a knowledgeable masseuse and by doing certain exercises. Here's a site that explains some of the proper exercises:

I have lower back pain and sciatica and both the exercises and massages help a lot.

As far as something new coming along, that's the hardest thing about lupus that most of us deal with. I'm sorry you're having such a rough time.
