I am sorry for your symptoms. I am writing you an initial answer. You may ask follow-up questions, once you read it.

You need a high-resolution CT scan of the lungs, chest x-ray, and spirometry for the evaluation with blood work for evaluation and ascertaining the cause of your symptoms.

You would need the following investigations:

Liver function tests

Thyroid function tests

Erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR)

Serum electrolyte level measurement

Immunoglobulin M (IgM)/immunoglobulin G (IgG) coxsackievirus B titer

IgM/IgG human herpesvirus 6 (HHV-6) titer

IgM/IgG C pneumoniae titer

Autoimmune panel

Anemia panel.

Your symptoms can be due to;

Thyroid disease

Connective tissue diseases

Chronic anemia

Neoplastic disease

Chronic infections like Epstein Barr virus

Endocrine diseases (Addison disease).

Chronic fatigue syndrome

Myasthenia Gravis.

I wish your symptoms resolve soon.
