I pop and crack--knees, neck, shoulder, hip, low back, and it is sometimes painful or brings upon soreness. Have lupus, but what could cause this?

Can invasive spine surgery with lots of neck and arm pain and stress on body bring on symptoms of MS or lupus? Can is allow a disease to manifest?

VERY DIFFERENT: Both ms and lupus are immune mediated inflammatory disorders, and your neck issues most likely due to degenerative or traumatic etiologies. None of these are related to each other, and in fact, your symptoms may indeed be due to post-operative complications such as scarring. An expert neurologist can readily sort out and categorize your issues, and may be worthwhile to have a consultation. ...Read more

I have a faint rash to my neck/cheek, asthma diagnosis 2 yrs ago requiring freq streriods, migraines, and chronic neck/upper back pain. Could this be lupus?

Need evaluation: Lupus is an autoimmune disorder where the body "reacts against self" for unknown reasons. Lupus can be difficult to diagnose and requires blood tests. Almost all patients with lupus have joint pain/arthritis and many have chest pain, fatigue, fever, hair loss, mouth sores, sensitivity to sunlight and rash on face. Almost any body organ system can be affected. Asthma is not associated with lupus. ...Read more
