In brief: Fight it!

Autoimmune diseases can be debilitating; my advice would be to fight it with all you have.
Swimming, yoga, walking can be beneficial. A good diet can also be beneficial as proper nutrition is extremely important to maintain one's health.

In brief: Control

Physical exercise sounds counterintuitive but can actually help with the fatigue and make the day more manageable.
Also, certain drugs such as Hydroxychloroquine may help the fatigue as well as control the lupus or rheumatoid arthritis.
