Lots of symptoms: Symptoms can vary from person to person and the list is so long i would exceed the maximum reply size this site allows, but the "big ones" are constant tiredness not explained by exertion or lack of sleep, muscle and joint pains, new or changed type of headaches, foggy thinking, and many others. There are several similar syndromes, so you need a doctor to confirm which one causes your issue.

One of the most common causes for chronic fatigue is depression. Must exclude that first before making the diagnosis of CFS
