Is it possible for undifferentiated connective tissue disease can be debilitating at times (fatigue, pain, dizziness, etc)? Because it is for me though thankfully i'm treated by rheumatologist with meds

In brief: No'

Mctd should not be this debilitating.
Other problems may exist. I would get a second opinion.

In brief: Careful

Connective tissue diseases certainly can cause fatigue and pain.
However, when someone uses the word debilitating, it sends up a red flag. I would do a careful investigation as to the cause rather than simply ascribe it to the connective tissue disease.
