Question could this be caused by lupus?

Last summer I had a severe lupus flare involving the central nervous system and was put on high dose steroids and imuran. Over the last 8 months I have been gradually stepping down on the prednisone (down to 5mg now) and have had no ill effects.

However, recently I have been experiencing pains in the right thigh that have continued for about 2 weeks, it tends to be a dull pain that is mostly noticeable when walking or if I move my leg in a certain way.

Is it possible this is a sign of a lupus flare?

To me it sounds like a pinched nerve or something like that. Do you see a chiropractor? it may just be that your spine is out of alignment.

Hope you feel better.

I know exactly what you mean. I've had the all over pain and then the one spot on my upper leg pain. I have no idea what it is - or if it considered part of a flare.

I HATE to admit this but I've found that yoga really helped. I'm sorry to suggest it because I LOATHE it when people tell me to exercise. (I'm too tired to even feed the cat or do the dishes - why waste precious energy?)

A litte goes a LONG way, too. I don't use a video, anymore. I do a little in the morning in my PJ's while my son watches Elmo. Ten minutes, max. It really has kept THAT pain in bay.
