Fatigue is a major problem for me.  I found a good article that describes it well and offers coping techniques.  I've posted this on the RA forum but it applies across the board for systemic AI's including lupus (which is mentioned in the article).  Hope I'm not breaking rules by supplying the link to the article here as well - apologies, moderators, if so.  Just thought it might be helpful in both places.

Thank you for posting that. I was just on here looking for information on dealing with this overwhelming fatigue. As I sit here my head is about to fall over and hit the keyboard.

It's just what I needed today.

tweezybird, have you tried plaquinel? It's helped a lot with my fatigue. I still get tired, but it's not as crippling for me.
