Re: Leg pain on walking

Dear suziewong, I certainly do not have any medical training (I'm just a patient). But you mentioned in your first post being positive at some point for anti-Sm antibody. This autoantibody is considered very "specific" to lupus, meaning it is NOT seen in other diseases/conditions.

If you would like to do some quick reading---
(1) See the "sticky posts" at the front of the Board. Also, the "sticky" about lupus test results contains a resource that discusses various lupus tests.
(2) Click the "Resources" tab above, then MedLine Plus, then diseases, then Rheumatology, then lupus.

Why don't you try to see a rheumie? Then if your problems do not end up being in that discipline, well, at least you'd know that you'd gone in for what seems to be a very logical consult. Good luck & keep posting us all when you have time, OK? Bye for now, with best wishes, Vee
