Your leg pain sounds like sciatica, which is caused by nerve compression putting pressure on your sciatic nerve. Unless it's very severe, you can help it by using a knowledgeable masseuse and by doing certain exercises. Here's a site that explains some of the proper exercises:

I have lower back pain and sciatica and both the exercises and massages help a lot.

As far as something new coming along, that's the hardest thing about lupus that most of us deal with. I'm sorry you're having such a rough time.

SLE, fibro, renauds, restless leg, hiatal hernia, double vision, migraines, costocondritis.

prednisone, plaquenil, leflunomide, neurontin, synthroid, triamterene, actonel, niaspan, tri-est, cymbalta, tricor, acifex
