OK I know I have lupus.....and things are getting better i have gotten on new drugs. but lately I have started havng chest pains....like pressure all around my ribs, it comes and goes. i can sit, stand, lay down either way NOTHING helps.nothing brings it on it started thursday and has not gotten worse or better? Is this the new meds,which i started nearly 6months ago!? or something new,in which case i should rush to the hospital bout?
i have no clue, but i also had servere chest pains just like you described.. but im not on any meds for lupus. i havent been diagnosed w. lupus or RA yet but its very possible i have one of the two with my sypmtoms. chest pains are a sypmtom of lupus though,, so it could be a newly developed sypmtom in you? or stress.
