In brief: Malaise syndrome

There is no blood test for malaise syndrome.
Malaise is a general term to mean "feeling unwell." although somewhat controversial, chronic fatigue syndrome is said to be associated with post-exertional malaise such as fatigue, light-headedness, muscle or joint pain, cognitive dysfunction, headache, nausea, weakness, trembling or insomnia.

In brief: ???

Perhaps you are referring to chronic fatigue syndrome? To my knowledge, there are no lab tests that can diagnose it.
It's a clinical diagnosis.
