So I bought a fitbit like 2 months ago, and I've worn it pretty consistently. I have some concerns regarding the data it's given me though...

I'm 22, very good shape, body fat is less than 10%, resting heart rate is below 60, 6' and 140lbs. But I constantly feel fatigued or tired, and I just sort of assumed this is normal after a long time of not being able to find a cause for it; I assumed it was my diet, so I changed it, ate more, then I thought it was my sleep, got a good rhythm going and everything - but nothing really changed this feeling of tiredness.

After looking through the data over the last couple of months, my calorie burn is ridiculously high. I'm a student, so my days are either sedentary with me almost not leaving the house, or doing a lot.

When I play sports, I'm burning 300-400 calories an hour casually. I calculate it at around 750 when I'm working hard (hr consistently over the 135 marker).

On my sedentary days I'm apparently burning around 2300 calories, and my active days up to around 4,000.

I've had a shit load of blood tests done already based on the feelings of fatigue, but haven't taken any of this data to a doctor. Is it worthless information? Is it something to be concerned about?

I've never used a fitbit, but there's no way something on your wrist can give you an actual, valid account of how many calories you are burning. Regardless, TDEE of 2300 is pretty normal for being sedentary. I'd honestly say your active calorie burn count is probably off.

>but haven't taken any of this data to a doctor.

"Hi, I'm anon, I have been experiencing a medical ailment lately and I thought it would be wise to try every single thing except go to a doctor, who is trained in diagnosing and treating medical ailments."

That sound about right?

I've had something like 10 vials of blood tested. They've found absolutely nothing so far. There are only so many times you can go to the doctor with the same complaint, especially if they find nothing; I got the fitness tracker after my last visit to get data on my sleep.
