Jana,If the pain started suddenly and hurts when you breathe you really do need to have it checked out. Please go to the ER and let them check you out. It's better to be safe than sorry! One of the symptoms of lupus does include chest pains and chances are with it on the right side of your chest it doesn't have anything to do with your heart, but you do need to go have it checked out. Please post when you can. Hugs!

Hi Jana, It could be a gallstone or kidney stone. Are you running a temperture. I mean 101 or so? If it 's too bad you may need to go to the ER. If it isn't bad enough for the ER or it goes away you need to keep an eye on it anyway and mention it to your doctor.
Jana,I was hoping that you had posted again to let us know how you're doing. I hope that everything is okay, please post when you can. Hugs!
