Hi Peeps and welcome to the forum.

You need to ask your GP to check your iron to rule out anaemia and to do a thyroid panel to check your thyroid function. Ask for vitamin D, B12 and folate to be tested too as they can present with some of the symptoms you describe when deficient or low in range. I'm not at all clued up on adrenal insufficiency so can't help with that.

Make sure to get a printout of your results with the lab ref ranges and then post them in Questions for advice.
