Is It Common In Lupus To Have Severe Pain When Standing?

Is It Common In Lupus To Have Severe Pain When Standing?

I get severe Screaming pain in my right lower back and right hip within 20 min of standing. The pain improves if I sit or walk but comes back if I stand in one place for 20min. I feel like I have to keep changing position. It is very difficult to stand and do chores, work, cook even shower. I feel like its getting worst. Any suggestions?

I do too it just tightens up til I don't want to move at all. I rest between task, and I change from lying to sitting on sofa the rest of the time. Do you have anything for pain? I strongly recommend a tens machine from retail me not . com, the signal blocks the pain pathway, they can run on batteries or plug it in. About less than 50. They may be calling it stimulating massage thing or something like that. I loved mine til pain became all over. 😆. I have to order another loaned it and it didn't come home. That'd an option no you don't have to have a rx. Will be praying for you, be kind to yourself too...kkc
