Fatigue : Several factors could cause fatigue in your age group. Anemia, thyroid disease, anxiety, depression, vitamin deficiencies, viral infections, electrolyte imbalances to name a few. Your physician should be able to run a few tests to assist you in finding the cause of your fatigue. Hope this helps.
