Can anyone relate to fatigue with anxiety?

I'm new here and have really bad health anxiety. I tried zoloft but I felt more depressed and unmotivated on it. A couple of times a day I have waves of overwhelming fatigue and because of my anxiety I'm now terrified that I have chronic fatigue syndrome and will be like this for the rest of my life. My anxiety has been really bad for about six months now. I don't know how to get out of it because I'm convinced there is something really wrong with me. I've had loads of blood tests and they are all normal.

I've always related the fatigue with the fact that you're basically trying to run on double the brainpower... For example, with me I basically have to try and keep up 3 personalities in the space of a day. My college personality where I'm slightly relaxed but I try to not show my emotions massively, my home personality where I have to always act like I'm on top of the fucking world because if I don't smile on command everybody gets pissy with me. And then I have my actual personality which only really comes out when I'm alone

Yes. Anxiety is exhausting...think of it this way-you are pretty much always on "alert", and your brain is always on, thinking of things that are eating at you, bothering you, and preparing you for the next threat. I know that when I'm going through a period of high anxiety, I'm constantly exhausted. Adding the constant fear that you might have an added health issue is probably compounding the issue because you are driving your anxiety right through the roof. I also know that when I'm in a period of higher anxiety, I don't sleep well. Even when I get sleep, my dreams are horrible, or I wake up a lot, so it's not restful sleep. I try to remember that my brain is just a real jerk about things, but as you well know, it doesn't always help.

Whenever I have to meet and talk to people, I feel drained and exhausted afterwards. I have constant worry so I have trouble falling asleep and waking up tired.
