Do you know if your muscles get inflamed with Lupus?

My upper left arm, both muscles where the arms bend, and my knees & ankles muscles swell up. Oh, and at the base of my right side of my neck front of shoulder does too. Its very painful. My dad and sister had Lupus, but I've been tested twice and they haven't caught it. My sister had to be checked four times b4 they found her's. Any ideas or other symptoms?
