Overwhelmed while searching for second diagnosis

@toomanyoars I looked at your profile and I see you are a mom with older kids. I thought I'd add that the symptoms with the hot flashes and not being able to sleep are also menopause symptoms. You can take bio-identical hormone replacement of estrogen balanced against progesterone and get that from a compounding pharmacy to control hot flashes if that is the reason. If you find yourself still looking for a cause as you follow the path to figuring this out, you might see a functional medicine doctor and ask. Symptoms do vary a lot individually and some people do have a lot of fatigue. You can call a compounding pharmacy if you need to get names of doctors who use their services.

Thank you. My estrogen levels are steady so they aren't thinking menopause yet however of course we all know they can make mistakes. The idea about finding a doctor through a compounding pharmacy is great. I hadn't thought of that. So far the only functional medicine doctors I have found were 2 and a half hours away. But there is a compounding pharmacy close to me so thank you for suggesting that as a resource.
