To make matters worse, it is almost impossible to get an exact diagnosis. The chronically ill are tossed into categories like fibromyalgia and the true cause of issues are rarely sought out by traditional medicine.
I have 30 years of experience being chronically ill and am curing myself from mercury poisoning, heavy metals toxicity, chronic pain, thyroid issues, candida and leaky gut. It was not an easy road to travel and there were more setbacks than I care to remember, but I have learned a thing or two about what makes my body tick.
There some essential things a sick person must do. The first of these would be to access their diet and clean it up. Getting the sugar and white flour is a must if you seek wellness. The next thing I would do is assess the gut. I would recommend candida testing at home with the simple test you can find on this site at

Next I would look to the mouth. Any mouth infection, even if it just manifests as a slight gum tenderness, can cause you all of the symptoms you recognize as chronic fatigue. If you are storing mercury in your teeth, via silver fillings, these fillings must be removed by a biologic dentist. A serious look at dental implants and root canals must also be assessed as they can harbor bacteria. The symptoms may not feel like mouth pain, but can cause the symptoms you recognize with chronic pain.
A gut and mouth that are unhappy are enough to cause decades of illness that is mysterious, continuous, debilitating and probably misdiagnosed. Most people are reticent to look into the gut or dental issues because traditional medicine ignores them. This means stepping outside the box and possibly accepting ridicule while going against your doctor's advice.
The unfortunate truth is that most Western doctors have no idea how to heal a gut issue or how to deal with mercury toxicity. Instead they find themselves more comfortable diagnosing problems as popular, "designer" diseases that have an accompanying line of pharmaceuticals. These drugs will mask the symptoms and trick your body into testing more appropriately, but they do not cure chronic illness. If you take on these drugs instead of searching for the cause, you may never get well.
This short video on mercury will give you an idea of how similar the symptoms of your chronic pain and fatigue are aligned with mercury poisoning. One might say no to investigating mercury as a source of their problems believing they have fibromyalgia, Multiple Sclerosis, Lupus or another disease. What you will see in the film is that ALL THE SYMPTOMS ARE THE SAME! It makes no sense not to investigate the possibility of metals as your source of illness when they provide such similar symptoms.
