Hi Miss Lupus.I am not diagnosed yet,but have most lupus symptoms,so I am by no means an expert..but I do know this much..alot of the autoimmune illnesses/connective tissue illnesses seem to connect to one another in a sense..Have you been checked out for Fibromylagia also?I have been diagnosed with that,and I also get bumpy/lumpy knees on the side,or the inside of the elbow will swell huge,,,this hurts like heck.My elbows stay swollen almost continuosly,,especially the left one,and Im right handed,,you think that one would be worse!!My lower back are will swell also..this can be or start anywhere..talk to your doctor about fibro...

Ok,,thats good your rheumy knows..Hopefully it will get better for you...These illnesses cause so many symptoms,and since everyone is made up genetically different,evryones symptoms are alittle different too.It must be your tissue swelling up from the inflammation...
