I'm new to all of this. I have had Fibro for 15+ years and just started having Lupus symptoms in the last 3 months. Rhemy still working on a diagnosis since my lab work was all over the place.

Is it normal to have joint pain in small burst and it move around every few minutes/hours? Just wondering.

One of the annoying characteristics of Lupus is that inflammation giving you pain today may be somewhere totally different tomorrow!

Note that Lupus is not diagnosed by lab work -- you need to have 4 of 11 possible symptoms, lab work is only one of them. You can be diagnosed with or without blood results, check out the Diagnosing Lupus link below.

Yes. I believe that's most likely why some people have a hard time believing our illness and pain are real, because it moves around it makes us sound crazy to those unfamiliar with the disease. Just my theory.
