Re: Extreme fatigue for years - still no diagnosis

One idea for you both if you haven't tried this yet- see a good functional medicine Dr. They focus on things like food intolerances, vitamin deficiencies, yeast overgrowth, etc., the things many traditional Drs tend to poo-poo. They use labs that measure candida antibody levels, and all sorts of antibodies to foods, etc. They tend to use supplements to correct imbalances, but at least they do it in a scientific way, based on lab evidence of abnormalities. I believe they have a chronic fatigue panel that tests for all sorts of things that can cause fatigue. There is a very good one in Ft. Collins CO. Worth a try to get some answers.
