Back/Rib pain

I have been dx w/ lupus since December (abt 7 months now).  In the last month I have had pain in my back under my ribs. Hurts to move, deep breaths, lay on my right side.  I have been doing online research and costochondritis comes up alot, esp with Lupus, however, isn't that pain associated with only the chest bone/sterum?  Could it be a flare up in my back? Or have I simply pulled a muscle? I see my specialist mid July and can ask then, but, its been sticking around so long I am a little worried.

love to all, keep on keepin on!!

    Absolutely! Lupus flares up in my ribs, back, neck, and shoulders. It hurts so bad to breathe. The pain is very intense. It lasts a couple of days usually. On YouTube there's an amazing Lupie who explains so much. Her name is Jennifer Borrego. Good luck. 💪🦋💜
