It sounds like you have had a rough time...((Hugs)). Did your doctor check you for Fibro? The burning, weak muscles sounds alot like fibro but, Lupus can also attack your muscles as well. Sometimes its hard to tell what disease is causing what symptom.
Your last flare does sound like a nightmare. When lupus attacked my equallibirum I was laid up for months too. I couldn't do anything like you. My family had to take care of me. It ended up damaging my equallibirum, I lost alot of hearing in my left ear, and have constant ringing in both ears. I had to learn how to walk again with my balance issues. I still have problems walking at night or on uneven ground and have no balance in water, so I can no longer swim. It gets frustrating at times.
The muscle pain and weakness can definately be caused from lupus. I think alot of us experience it in flares. I hope your meds kick in soon and you will start to feel alot better. Hang in there and take care. Keep us updated. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.
