What is a doctor who specializes in fatigue (low energy levels) called. ?
I don't have the energy to work a full time job. I barely have enough energy to work a part time job.

They’re going to find out why you don’t have the energy and there is medication out there to help with that...it’s called Diphenylmethylsulfinylacetamide. More commonly known as Modafinil.

Depends on what is causing your fatigue. If it is fibromyalgia could be a pain management doctor or immunologist. So there are a lot of illnesses that cause weakness and fatigue and sometimes people have multiple issues besides weakness and fatigue and they see more than one specialist.

Start with a general practitioner (GP) or Internist.
Fatigue can result from stress, bereavement and grief, eating disorders, alcohol abuse, drug abuse, anxiety, boredom and life changes like a new home or divorce. Conditions like a hormonal imbalance, Cushing's disease, Addison's disease, kidney disease, diabetes, hypothyroidism, anemia, and liver disease, among many other conditions, can cause fatigue.
It can be a physiological or psychological issue or a combination of both.

Start with your GP and then get referred to an internist. Internists are great at solving medical puzzles.

there is no such specialty..
however, GP (or Family Doctors) are the first line to such cases, of which basic investigations should reveal which sub-specialty you need to get next..
for example, if the fatigue is from a medical illness like Diabetes Mellitus, the GP (or the family doctor) may refer you to see an internist (a medical doctor specialized in internal medicine), if the fatigue is caused by the low production of the Thyroid hormone (from the Thyroid gland located in the neck) you maybe referred to a General Surgeon, if the fatigue is caused by a Major Depression Disorder, you maybe referred to a Psychiatrist, and if it is related to issues in sleep, you maybe referred to sleep-clinic or such..
but even simple manageable cases of Diabetes, Hypothyroidism, depression and/or sleep, can be managed by the General Practitioner GP (or by the Family Doctor - it is what a GP is called in the UK and in countries that follow the British health system)
all the best..
