You may purchase a test kit online for a reasonable price without a prescript
ion. Do a search for the Prestige IQ meter and buy the cheapest set up they have with a few strips. As far as the fatigue thing goes, when my daughter was going thru the diagnosis process for Crohns we found that adding a couple of glasses of Gatorade to her daily regimen helped her fatigue levels A LOT!
We started buying the powdered kind to save cupboard space and add variety. Those big cases of bottles they have at Sams or Costco are ok, but they take a lot of hauling!
When she would drink her "daily potion" as we called it, you could almost see her coming back to life, like a wilted flower that finally got watered. Electrolyte loss from drinking lots of water can contribute to fatigue, hand shaking and the rest. Also contributes to nausea. Make sure the Gatorade is icy cold. Tasted better that way. Might work for you... hope so.
