Hello

You have to ask your doctor what his diagnosis is.

That is how you know what to do.

This sounds like chronic fatigue syndrome.

To rule out other problems you need:

exam

all routine labs and urinalysis

thyroid studies

ANA panel

sed rate

Andrenal panel.

If all this is normal, is is likely CFS.

Talk with your doctor again.
