Probably not related

Endometriosis, while it can really cause a lot of pain over many years does not in and of itself cause fatigue. Certainly the pain can wear one down but again, it does not directly cause fatigue. The workup for fatigue includes blood work to check the function of almost all the different organs and glands in the body - kidney, liver, blood cells, thyroid (TSH) to name the basics.

Vitamin D Level

Muscle fatigue among a host of other health related issues, may occur with low D levels. Keep in mind that Vitamin D should be in an oil base when taken. Also be aware that you only absorb ~35% of an oral dose. Most efficient route is sub-lingual.

Yes, it could

Yes, vitamin D deficiency could cause fatigue and depression. Talk with your doctor about replenishing this. With your very low level, you may need high dosing with it temporarily, and then back off to a maintenance dose. Please be aware that it's also possible to have multiple conditions at once, all of which need treatment (depression, anxiety , AND Vit D deficiency, etc).

Make diagnosis

Those are a lot of things and they may or may not all be connected. Certainly with an elevated sed rate and a positiveANA test are concerning for an autoimmune condition, such as lupus, would be a concern. I would encourage you to continue work up with a rheumatologist and ultimately the single or multiple diagnosis made will aid in treatment and prognosis discussions. Thank you.

Fatigue with PBC

I truly sympathize with you, as I have patients with the same complaint. You should work with your gastroenterologist as I see no medication that is used for PBC. There is no cure at this time, but there are some medications that can be tried, probably not to necessarily make it better, but, at least, to prevent the speed of the worsening.

Vit D deficiency has been linked to your symptoms, but deficiency is known to have no obvious symptoms. Best way to find out is to take robust doses of Vit D & get sufficient sun exposure. You're in a northern latitude, you need longer exposure to sun (UVB rays) & more exposed skin. If doing this doesn't relieve symptoms but levels normalize, something else is wrong. If cant normalize GI ? problem
