You might have a sleep disordercas a possibility may benefit to have a sleep study..if you lack quality sleep due to problem such as obstructive sleep apnea for example then you may have more fatigue / aches / daytime drowsiness/ mental fog/ headaches / high blood pressure ....

So this would be a consideration ...

Also a consideration could be fibromyalgia ( this may cause a mild elevation of C-reactive protein but other tests usually normal...)

If fibromyalgia is part of cause then you may benefit from treatments such asCymbalta or Lyrics among other treatment options
