    Same can go for furniture (treated with chemicals).

    If you've checked everything already; have you and your sister had any tick/insect bites?
    or maybe swum in the same natural body of water?
    I was thinking perhaps a tick bite as well. Doctors usually don't test for lyme's disease or think about it. Not saying that it is, but here are the symptoms, one of which is extreme fatigue:
    • Flu-like illness
    • Fever
    • History of Tick Bite (Not all patients recall a bite)
    • Headache
    • Extreme Fatigue
    • EM Rash, Other Rashes (Only found in 50% of patients)
    • Malar Flush, Red Ear Lobes
    • TMJ/TMJD Jaw Pain (Temporomandibular joint dysfunction)
    • Neck & Back Pain
    • Joint Pain & Swelling, Bone Pain
    • For the full list of symptoms visit the Lyme Disease Association’s Signs and Symptoms List.
    I wish for a quick diagnosis for you and your sister and I hope you both will be able to return back to normal heath!

    We did go to New Mexico together and swam a few times in a natural spring.
    We have considered Lyme and mentioned it to doctors and they’ve brushed it off and made it seem like that’s not even something to consider.

    Many of those symptoms definitely match.
    And thank you for your well wishes.
    We have an appointment (finally) in a few day. We’ll see what happens.

    what else *sigh*.

    seriously, at least 99% of doctors will make your life hell if it turns out to be Lyme.
    If you want to write a book named "the most stupid and idiotic things to say as a doctor", you will be more than well provided in this case.
    I hope for you it's something else. Best of luck.
