Some common causes are medications, low thyroid, depression or anxiety, anemia, mono virus, and sleep apnea. There are also many more possible causes and so i would recommend visiting your healthcare professional and at least starting with basic blood work and a review of your current medications and overall health status.

In brief: Multifactorial

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a multifactorial consequence of hormonal, immune system and nervous system dysfunction resulting from genetic predispositions and dietary and environmental insults.
These factors impair the patient's ability to produce energy and they end up chronically fatigued. Poor diet, suboptimal sleep, food and other allergies contribute.
