Oh Absolutely. Lupus can affect the body in any way it pleases. The symptoms you described are very much what we all deal with from time to time. Lupus can definitely affect you neurologically and your muscles, tendons, ligaments, anything it wants to attack, it can. That's one of the reasons why this disease can be a bear to manage and keep under control.
When was your last visit to your rheumy? Sounds like you need to touch base with them. Never let symptoms like this go untreated. When you notice or feel a change, get to your rheumy right away. The faster you can catch a flare up, the healthier you'll be.
Which medications are you on?
I can do anything through Jesus Christ who strengthens me. I have learned in whatever state I am in,to be content. Phillipians 4:11-13
