Hi I have coped with Lupus for 11 years, hypertension 1 year, under active thyroid for 3 years. Over the last month I have had increasing pain all around my lower abdomen and lower back, both sides. When I feel my tummy it feels like little lumps/fatty tissue which is really painful to touch. I am in quite severe pain and don't know if this is another autoimmune disease on its way or a progression of Lupus. Has anyone else suffered in the same way??
