Fatigue: I recommend that you set up an appointment with a Psychologist. She/he will help you decide whether your problem is emotional or requires a consult with a primary care doctor. If you are not satisfied with your current doctor have a family or friend recommend a different doctor. Please keep me informed.

Many possibilities: Fatigue and tachycardia while any activity like talking is non-specific and can be due to a range of problems. The first thing would be to document the extent of the tachycardia - you could use a heart rate monitor from any vendor. Knowing that your mean heart rate is elevated over a 24 hour period is the first step. Obviously you have fatigue and excluding endocrine problem is the first step.
