Can chronic fatigue cause abnormal gait (weak legs), low grade fevers, itchy rashes on upper chest and back, and patches of goose bumps come and go?

Chronic fatigue: Chronic fatigue can arise from many sources - not the least of which is not sleeping soundly. Have your doctor refer you for a sleep study. If that turns out OK a consult with a neurologist will evaluate your abnormal (weak) gait would be my next choice for you.

Unlikely: Symptoms of chronic fatigue are impairment of short term memory or concentration, sore throat, tender lymph nodes, muscle pain, multiple joints without swelling or redness, headaches, unrefreshing sleep, post exertional malaise lasting more than 24 hours. You must have 4 or more of these symptoms and severe c.f for at least 6 months. Your symptoms are different. Go to doctor.
