Hi Bunny, and welcome to the forum. While I'm sorry you've been diagnosed with SLE, you've come to a good place to ask questions and to receive moral support.
Your question about major fatigue is one that most of us deal with, and for me it is more debilitating than any other symptoms that I have, including some pretty severe pain. I wish I had an answer for you. Have you discussed this with your rheumy? CellCept has helped me a great deal, but it suppresses your immune system and has lots of potentially serious side effects so may not be for everyone. I've already had to decrease my dosage because of a side effect and the fatigue is back again. It's really a trial and error process as well as a process that is aided by open communication between you and your rheumy.
I'll be interested to read some other responses you get from the terrific folks here because I find myself learning something new just about every day. Lots of luck.
