In brief: No home remedies

The arthritis of lupus almost always responds to treatment of the disease.
Home remedies do not help. I would make sure that the pain you experience is truly lupus arthritis or an associated issue such as fibromyalgia.

In brief: Doubtful

Home remedies will not work.
Lupus arthritis can be difficult to treat but something should work. There are many options and I am surprised nothing will work at all to help your disease. I typically will find something to help my patients reduce pain even though it may not be gone completely. Also we do many lupus research studies so it may be your benefit and see if lupus studies are an option.
