Lupus: arthritis is generally not destructive. it goes away as the flare up goes away. in some more severe cases some destruction may occur and that can cause ongoing pain

Joint pain: When in flare, lupus may cause non-destructive arthritis, but joints shouldn't hurt if you are treated for the SLE properly.

Yes: Unless you are in a flare you should not really have constant pain.
