Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks for the query

I am Dr. Alok and very pleased to be assisting you with your health questions today.

yes, stiffness, muscles aches and soreness in mouth can be a part of lupus, A simple ANA test from blood may be helpful. If it is negative, lupus can be rule out , but if positive, you need to go for further investigation.

I advice you to see a rheumatologist for the tests and can show me the reports for further discussion and treatment required.

Hope this helps and provides answers to your question.
If you have any further queries, please don’t hesitate to ask me again
I wish you good health, take care
