Brief Answer:
Low functiOwning thyroid or

Detailed Answer:

I understand your concern. The exhaustion, lethargy and the cold feeling you are experiencing indicate to a low functioning thyroid. So I would start by checking the thyroid hormone levels first.
Since you said your doctor has not found anything of concern and if your thyroid hormone levels are found to be normal, then it may very well be chronic fatigue syndrome. This is a condition characterized by extreme fatigue that cannot be explained by a medical cause.
However, chronic fatigue syndrome is a diagnosis of exclusion, meaning, other medical reasons need to be ruled out first. So I recommend you see your doctor and insist on giving you a thorough check up to determine the cause.
I hope this helps. If you have further questions I'd be happy to answer them.
Wishing you good health and all the best.
