In brief: Yes
Although sle ("lupus") affects people differently, chest pains can be common for some.
Often, this is due to small amounts of fluid building up in the lining of the lung.

Yes.
Chest pain in lupus can come from many different causes. Pleuritis, chest pain due to inflammation of the tissue surrounding the lung, is a diagnostic criteria for systemic lupus erythematosus. Patients with lupus can also get indigestion, pneumonia, blood clots, heart disease etc. That also cause chest pain.
