Yes you could be experiencing re-actions to an unknown allergens.Fresh coats of paint can trigger off allergic re-actions. Are you in contact with either on a day-to-day basis?
As in an occupation or living in close proximity-in the vicinity of some-thing associated with either?
First, the bad news: For many people, allergy season has become a year-round stint, according to the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (AAAAI). But there's good news too. "With the latest allergy treatments available, there's no reason for anyone to go around feeling miserable," says William Howland, MD, director of the Asthma and Allergy Center of Austin, Texas.
The first step is to try minimizing your exposure to the substances that trigger your allergies, such as pollen, mold, and animal dander. If that doesn't help, talk to your primary care doctor about medication options.If your symptoms aren't responding after a number of therapies, it would be wise to consult an allergist who can help identify what you're allergic to and how best to treat your case. Often, the sooner you start treatment, the easier it will be to improve your condition. Waiting may only make things worse, doctors say.

I always wondered the same thing, if an allergen can cause fatigue as a symptom.  Would be interesting to find out.  

Cause sometimes I can eat a food item, then feel super drained afterwards.
