Did stimulants Cause my CFS? Please help!!!

Hello I'm a 25 years old and i'm a Rn student who crashed last semester. At the time i was incredibly stressed out and taking about 60 Mgs of adderall a day. they were 20 mg XR tabs and I took them through out the day. One day as I was incredibly stressed out I decided to take another to stay up late, but nothing ever happened. The next day I got 8 hours of sleep and felt like I got no sleep. Ever since then i have woken up feeling extremely tired. I been to many many doctors over the last 8 months and they all have said i'm depressed or I have CFS. The funny thing is i dont feel depressed and in the past i have delt with depression and this feels nothing like it.Also, All the blood work came back Negative for all common causes of fatigue. I took a saliva cortisol test it stated my Dheas was abnormally high my morning cortisol was high, and my evening was cortisol was high. So i guess that counts out have adrenal fatigue . Right? I may be wrong.

The weird thing about this is every time I take my adhd meds it seems to make my symptoms worse. Anyone have a clue whats the deal. All i know is i'm so upset that i have no energy. That is surely making me depressed
