In brief: Many things
Chronic diarrhea can lead to dehydration/volume depletion, electrolyte imbalance and porr nutrition all of which can lead to fatigue and lethargy.
A thorough workup, identifying the cause and proper treatment once the diagnosis is made can significantly improve or resolve your problem. See a colorectal surgeon or gastroenterologist for a thorough evaluation.
