I had loads of tests from the GP and two consultants but nothing untoward found (which is good in a way but not particularly helpful). In desperation I sought advice from a nutritionist who specialises in fatigue issues and have had some considerable success but just can't seem to get over the final hurdle. An adrenal stress test highlighted some problems and a blood test showed my testosterone to be off the scale (at the bottom end). So I've been working on them and they have made me feel much better - maybe continuing down this path will solve it but it is really testing my patience! First thing he treated me for though was a gut bacteria overgrowth/infection - that took about a year to sort but really helped and is a common problem.
If I was to offer any advice I'd say start to learn your energy limits for the day and never exceed them - all activity (including mental and even watching the telly) uses up your finite resource and any excess in one day will cause problems the next. You may wish to google Dr Myhill whose website has loads of good advice. When you do feel well enough to exercise take it really easy, build up very slowly. I should try and take that on board!!
Hope you feel better soon. If you need to bend an ear on occasion or just let off some steam to someone who may understand what you are going through feel free to pm me.
All the best, Peter.
