I've been dealing with fatigue that has been noticeably worse for the past few months. I've become tired to the point where I get a sensation of frontal head pain at times with the fatigue. My heart seems to beat faster (particularly at night) yet I don't feel anxiety towards anything that is new/out of the ordinary. I cut back on caffeine considerably over the last few weeks and have noticed a big increase in the amount of fatigue I've had, but also some nausea at times with headaches occurring every evening. The fatigue is the predominant issue that I'm dealing with and have seen an endocrinologist recently and have secondary hypogonadism. Issue seems to stem from a lot of various things, so pinpointing this and explaining all possible causal roots seems to be a difficult task for me. The most important question I have for you is to ask who I can see or talk to regarding the onset of fatigue I've had that has been around now for nearly 6 months total of debilitating tiredness.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
It could be due to Addison disease. Consultation with an experienced endocrinologist will help you in resolving this problem.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
