Hi!
Well, if you have discoid lupus then yes, you can also have joint involvement due to lupus. However, if there is pain in only one ankle joint then this can also be due to lupus neuropathy, osteoarthritis, gout, bursitis, tendonitis, rheumatoid arthritis etc. It is important to consult your rheumatologist and get this investigated.  Take care!
