How tall are you? How much do you weigh? Any weight change? Any other symptoms? Does anything make it worse or better? When did it start? Is it consistent? Is it getting worse? Are you aware of anything which might have triggered it? What did you have checked? TSH? Glucose? Testosterone? Any medical problems? Any surgeries? Any medications including over-the-counter pills and herbs? Any family medical history?

I'm 6'0", 177lbs. I recently had an oversized( 831g) parathyroid gland removed to correct a previous, hypercalcemic blood condition.
My blood calcium level retuned to normal, from 12.7 to 10.0.
Now My blood pressure is high( 153/90), and My energy level is low.
I take two blood pressure medicines, amodipine, and metropol. I am 61 yrs old. Am I just getting old?

You are too young to get tired easily. There are many causes to make people tired. For example, depression, under active thyroid, diabetes, heart problems, anemia, low testosterone, and so forth. You should see your doctor to find the cause.
