hai ,
you have fatigue and generalised lymphadenopathy and you have not mentioned your age . It could be lupus or tuberuclosis . you need to undergo tests to find the same.

Welcome to Health Care Magic.

We are very much concerned to know of your condition.
It is surprising that no diagnosis is made?!

Your description is highly suggestive of CANCER - I am sorry to say, but that is what you are saying amounts to!

If you don't know one - go the nearest multi-speciality tertiary care hospital / see a surgeon
Delay is dangerous
You must be investigated immediately - CT scan, Biopsy and so on. If something is found, they can start treatment straight away. If there is nothing, you must be lucky. It is better to be safe tan sorry.

Take care
Wish you a speedy recovery
God bless you
Good luck
