lupus and b12

i have gotten 4 wks of b12 shots to bring my levels up.The lack of b12 caused my arms and legs to ache really really bad. Now my levels are up my legs and arms dont hurt, my knees and ankles hurt.the only thing that took the pain away from my knee was pred. and the dr is not to fond of giving me pred. NOw is it lupus causing my knee and ankles to hurt or could it still being the b12?

Re: lupus and b12

The joint pain is most likely from the lupus, if your B12 levels are back to normal. Low B12 is very common in lupus, and you may need to stay on it indefinitely, depending on your labs and what your Dr thinks. If you have actual pernicious anemia, B12 is needed indefinitely.
