The symptom is exactly what the term suggests, major chronic fatigue, There are effective meds for this problem and you may want to see a rheumatologist. I would also urge that you have a sleep study.

It's thought as a disorder characterized mainly by extreme fatigue that cannot be attributed to any other disease.It can worsen with activity, and may not get better even with rest. You may also have loss of concentration or memory, unexplained muscle pain, swollen lymph nodes, sore throat, new headache, and joint pain. Antidepressants, sleep aids, PT,counseling, and reducing stress can help
