Re: Extreme fatigue for years - still no diagnosis
I would for sure ask for blood tests for autoimmune disease. These would be for a simple screening a CRP, sed rate, ANA and RA factor. I would also be tested for sleep apnea, even though you think you don't have it. I had it, never knew it, and my husband had no clue either. Treatment for it has made a huge difference. Also ask to get tested for chronic EBV infection. It is a blood panel to see if the mono virus is still active in your body, a cause of CFS. The last idea is to get adrenal function tested, a serum cortisol level at 8 AM and 4 PM for starters. All of these are blood tests, except a screening nightime pulse oximetry recording for the sleep apnea.
