Hi, Dustmite, and welcome! Yes, fibro has many of the same symptoms as lupus and, yes, you can have both. We have a member who has both lupus and fibromyalgia.
LJM is correct in that fibro is found in all four quadrants of the body, that it affects muscles, tendons, and ligaments, and there are fatigue and sleep issues. We also usually have some cognitive memory problems that we call fibro fog.
Be sure to read Fibro 101... the first thread on the forum. There are links to good info about fibro and you will learn a lot there. Good starting links for you would be What Else Could It Be and A Thorough Explanation of Fibromyalgia. All of Fibro 101 is good so do read it.
I'm looking forward to getting to know you better. Don't hesitate to ask questions because we are here to help you. Hope to hear more from you soon.
