hey girl i wish i had advice for you but i really don’t.  i also struggle with fatigue and not sure why.  even though my bloodwork doesn’t show me as having hypothyroidism, the doctor put me on thyroid meds anyway to try to boost the energy level and it just doesn’t do much!  i can sleep 8 to 9 hours a night and still be exhausted the entire next day.  this happens most days out of the week.

have you seen a doctor at all about this?

Talk to your doctor.  You might have a vitamin deficiency.

You need to talk with your doctor and get blood work done. Multivitamins don’t always give you everything you need. I am prone to becoming anemic (not enough iron) and I end up having similar symptoms to you.

A neat way of finding out if you are anemic: Take a gold ring (it has to be real good) and rub it in a line on your cheek, without makeup on. If it leaves a black or green mark, you are likely anemic. Still, this is not 100% and you will need the doctor/blood work to confirm it.
