Hello and welcome to e health forum.

Fatigue for a period of 3-4 days (Specifically for a period- less than 3 weeks), is not chronic fatigue syndrome.

Since you have recently traveled long distances, the symptoms you have are due to acute stress.

This is a short lived episode and will resolve soon, on its own.

Rest for a few days and proper nutrition and adequate fluids will help in quick resolution of your issues.
