Chronic fatigue

I am suffering from chronic fatigue(throughout the day) for the past 1-2 years. The fatigue doesn't wear off despite good sleep or good meal or good exercise. I can't remember the last fresh movement I had and my productivity levels are abysmally low. There are no other symptoms. About a month back I have met with a doctor who has asked me to undergo several tests mostly related to blood. There were no anomalies discovered except for subclinical hypothyroidism(TSH-5.5) and minor D-Vit deficiency(17.5). But unfortunately none of these could explain my chronic fatigue. I have started taking eltroxin 50mg upon doctor's advice but it I am seeing no improvement.
