Oh yes, this is very common in lupus. Probably one of the most common symptoms we get. I'm dealing with overwhelming fatigue right now too. I got 12 hours of sleep last night but I know I was waking up a lot trying to get comfortable. Insomnia with prednisone, like Pat said, is very common. Make sure you see your rheumy or at least talk to them on the phone about this. A lack of sleep over a period of time will make your lupus worse.
I can do anything through Jesus Christ who strengthens me. I have learned in whatever state I am in,to be content. Phillipians 4:11-13
