Fran, it's hard to say if the BP could be related to lupus or not. Depending on what you went to the ER for yesterday could have been part of why your BP was high. I was told that when people are in a lot of pain their blood pressure can go up. Also with lupus, sometimes when people have kidney problems their BP can go up. When I went through a 9 month stretch of leaking protein my BP was high, but now it's pretty much baclk to normal.
I hope your doc can figure this out for you. Keep us posted on what you find out. Take care
