can lupus cause swollen gums ?
I don't have Lupus, but I do have swollen gums. They get that way whenever my immune system is low.
My gums swell in 4 places, then the selling "pops" and they are left raw. With me, the cause is bone marrow infections created by poorly done root canals. I had this verified by nuclear scans and a biopsy.
I would be really interested to see what others say about this.
but IMHO any autoimmune disease can. It's an inflammatory response.
When I had my first big Crohn's flare up my gums got all swollen and red, plus mouth ulcers.
I had IV SoluMedrol (steroid) that got rid of it (and the other symptoms)
