In brief: Get tested

Set up an appointment with your doctor, to review your travel and exposure risks, and to get tested for lyme if need be (using an approved method).
Other tests will need to be done, to rule out other causes of profound fatigue such as hypothyroidism, ebv/cmv/tb infection, autoimmune disorder. Hhv-6 infection, vitamin d deficiency, and psychiatric disorder.
