my schitzoeffective dissorder,motivation and energy level tests

Hi, if I posted this in the wrong section of the forum then please move it to the right area. I would like to know if there is any physical or medical scientific tests I can take to know/confirm my energy levels/body energy levels and will level when it comes to motivation.

the reason for wanting to take these tests is that I have a severe mental brain neurological disability known as schitzoeffective disorder and it has been very difficult for me to manage over the years. long story short, one day I became depressed and lost all my motivation that I had over 4 years ago. my motivation to do anything ended up plummeting far below 0 in to the negatives. currently for about 3 years

I have been slowly recovering from that and building my motivation back up to normal levels with the help of a therapist that specializes in helping people with mental illnesses like myself. building motivation consist of 1. energy 2.will 3. purpose, its like a muscle so if you don't exercise it, it can atrophy or be harder to do things or get things done.

I once was in a mental hospital and during my stay they had me hooked up to a machine that measured my stamina(whatever that means) or something to do with stamina. they concluded that my stamina was extremely low, that's how I know that these sorts of physical or medical test's exists. I do record and monitor my motivation levels every weekday day wich has been going up or improving slowly but its more of a mental gist or something I made up

SO I want to actually take a lagit scientific tests or medical tests that shows my real energy levels and will level based on the facts rather then what I think it might be
