What tests should I ask for.

Trying to keep this as short at possible so I don't bore you all.
Have previously been to GP and had bloods done for iron levels which apparently came back normal.
The symptoms I have been having for over 6 months now are - extreme tiredness no matter how much sleep I get, feeling like I am in a daze/day dream all the time, I have no energy at all and unless I have to go to work (where I always feel like I am totally detached from what I am supposed to be doing and constantly yawning) I rarely get out the house, purely because I have no energy to get my self ready, almost as if sheer exhaustion results in nothing happening inside my head, just feels blank. It isn't depression I just feel so so tired. What other tests can I ask GP for to get some answers? Anyone had any experience with feeling like this?

Yes, just had results for all these tests mentioned, my symptoms were exactly like yours. All tests have come back clear which leaves me with no answer and no solution. Was told to change my lifestyle, make more time for myself etc. pretty much impossible. Have been given ADs but reluctant for now....

Do you snore? My hubby had very similar symptoms until his sleep apnea was sorted. He wasn't actually sleeping when he thought he was, at least not sleep that matters!

I was so, so tired, couldn't concentrate, felt increasingly vague, etc. shortly before being diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes. Has your blood sugar been tested?
