I am a 31 year old male. I am managing an IT company. I have suffered from periods of extreme fatigue for the past one and a half year. The first period of fatigue was one and a half year back and it lasted for around 18 days. Then I felt fine for the next five months. From then till today I have had one to two weeks of fatigue followed by one to two weeks of fine feeling. During these fatigue periods, I sleep an average of one extra hour each night. I get very little work done. I do not have the energy to exercise (which I have always enjoyed). I have no physical or mental energy and brain fog. This is something I have never experienced before. I have attached the blood test results. Abdominal ultrasound and chest x-ray are also done with normal results. My weight is normal and I eat a healthy varied diet. I supplement with fish oils. I do not work very much and I do not feel stressed. My blood pressure is normal. Physical examination was done at doctor’s office. The two doctors I have seen cannot find any problem, but something is clearly wrong with me. What do you suggest me to do next to find the root cause?

Thanks for your reply. For the last few years, I have spent maybe eight months per year here. Yes, I like my job very much and it is very interesting too. I go home every three months. My wife stays with me here and I have a good social life. My sexual satisfaction is good. This fatigue started when I travelled quite much. It is normal of course to be tired after a long trip, but since then the fatigue has come back periodical. The weakness, tiredness and brain fog that appears out of the blue and it is not connected to any mental or psychological challenges. I had my blood test done. Some values are actually high such as IgM, IgA, ferritin, etc. I have attached my report for your reference. Please help me.
