In brief: Yes. Serious?

Pantoprazole (protonix) has been linked to arthralgias (joint pains) and rarely to blood dyscrasias (abnormalities), liver disease etc this might be serious.
Stop now and see your md if problems persist.

In brief: Rare

I believe studies have shown that joint pain occurred in about 2% of people taking the drug and about 1% in those taking placebo.
I believe fatigue is also unlikely. These are rare side effects to the drug but we know every patient is different.
