Clinical evaluation of Fatigue

British Columbia
Wondering where to start and how to start breaking down fatigue, to find potential root causes and appropriate treatments.

Which labs have been beneficial for you along the way, in helping to sort out possible [exacerbating] sources of fatigue (also brain fog : memory impairment, word finding problems, short attention span, etc.)? Which labs are not-to-be-missed during an initial evaluation of global fatigue? Overlooked sources of fatigue? Any and all thoughts much appreciated.
