Chronic Fatigue: Given that extensive labs, imaging, and all medical causes have been ruled out, you may want to try stimulants if you dont have a history of addictions. I have seen Provigil work well but again this would off label use, consult an expert.

Usually: It is the presence of chronic mono, which has different immune profile on a mono panel!

See details: CFS is chronic fatigue without an identifiable cause. By definition, the cause is unknown. Several meds can help. One should also have a sleep study to rule out sleep abnormalities as a cause of the fatigue.
