OK

That doesn't sound like the typical lupus rash

But with the joint pain and the fatigue you might have either lupus or rheumatoid athritis

So you need to see your doctor for an exam and the following blood tests--

ANA, Rheumatoid Factor, sed rate and C reactive protein

Please let me know if you need any more information
