    Go in with a list of all your symptoms. Don't down play it. It is important that your GP gets a clear picture of all your symptoms. Exhaustion can have a number of causes and it will depend on your symptoms as to what they will look for. I would expect at the least you get a blood test for thyroid, pregnancy, b12, full blood count, liver and kidney function along with vitamin d.

    I'd go to the doctor, it sounds like you have proper fatigue, and that can be caused by many things. Good luck...it is an awful way to feel.

    You sound exactly like me when I stop taking iron supplements every day is like walking through sludge it takes so much energy just to put one foot in front of the other. It's truly horrible and the doctor isn't going to think your a hypochondriac to go in there and tell them exactly what you've said here. Something is up and it's worth getting it checked out
