Extreme fatigue, sudden appearance of brown marks on legs. Blood test done. Reason?

I recently went to a doctor due to extreme fatigue , and sudden brown marks cropping all over my legs. They look like healing bruises but I wasn t bruised... they just appeared out of nowhere, all of a sudden. The doctor ordered some tests. Most of my bloodwork looks very good (probably better than it has ina long time - normal RBC , normal HGB..) but some things are off. My neutrophils are at 40% (lowest should be 42.5). My lymphocytes are slightly elevated (50.6% when highest should be 47.4% and 3.98 when highest should be 3.18). Basophils are slightly low too (.01). I have hypothyroidism but the fatigue I am feeling now is more than anything I ve ever experienced before, other than during the early stages of pregnancy (which has been ruled out now too). I realize these levels are not extreme low/high, but if my bloodwork is okay, then why am I so exhausted all the time?? And what are these sudden weird marks on my legs?? TIA! Deena
