Chronic fatigue: Chronic fatigue can often be caused by lifestyle choices such as inadequate and irregular sleep patterns, excessive stress, medications/alcohol use and inappropriate diets/inadequate nutrition. Be sure to check and balance these things while waiting for the results of your work up.
