In brief: Fatigue in Lupus
Atudy was done at hospital for special surgery few years ago, which suggested that depression and sleep prpblems might contribute to fatigue in patients with lupus.
There have been other studies which suggest it may be due to lack of exercise. Acanadian study they found the fatigue is related to depression, pain, quality of sleep, quantity of sleep, exercise lack, severity of illness and stress.

In brief: Master of masquerade
Lupus is a famous master of masquerade--it can mimmic many disease states.
Lupus symptoms may be present much earlier than when it can be diagnosed, thus lab measurements only provide a guide. This only means the lab has its limitation and medical science has only gotten this far. Don't rely on the lab, but rather rely on your bopdy--maybe something else is going on. Consult your doc. Good luck.
