I would suggest a Complete thyroid panel, TSH, Free T4 Free T3, Ringing and fatigue are two of many symptoms of Underactive thyroid or Hypothyroid  Good Luck FTB4

Ask about dysautonomia. There are various types that can cause similar symptoms. Chronic fatigue syndrome or mono are other possibilities.

Thank you
