I don't really understand the questions.Can Lupus/RA affect your blood flow?
Probably, Lupus can affect almost anything, but it's not a common symptom.Can lupus or RA cause claudication?
I had to go look that up, I found: "Claudication is a medical term usually referring to impairment in walking, or pain, discomfort, numbness, or tiredness in the legs that occurs during walking or standing and is relieved by rest."
I have to give the same answer - Probably, Lupus can affect almost anything, but it's not a common symptom.
Maybe someone else here can provide more information.
