I have a question about fatigue

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

Nothing right now, have a dr. apt. in a few weeks

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Have really bad fatigue since a few days, hard to focus and stay awake. But it can change very rapidly, the fog which comes with it can come and go within minutes and does.

Is this a sign for MS or is brain fog and fatigue for MS longer lived vs. changing every few minutes?

Do you take any meds or have any medical issues?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
no meds, but I have lost (on purpose) a lot of weight over the past few weeks by drinking a lot of meal replacement.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
anything?
Neurologist: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 7 months ago
Could it be just loss of energy due to not eating as much?
