I suffer from that myself but I have had that most of my life lol, would you maybe just use weakness and fatigue? 780.79.

Staying in the same category, what about 780.99? In this case it almost seems more specific, because the definition of malaise and fatique could affect and cause the decreased exercise tolerance, but since it's not specifically stated in your note, wouldn't "other general symptoms" be more appropriate? Just a thought.

V57 is the category for encounter for rehabilitation and is first only allowable.. this would not be a dx code for decreased exercise tolerance, V47 is the category for other problems with internal organs, and if this is not documented then it cannot be used for exercised intolerance, You must always look at the category your code is in to see if the code selected is correct.
I agree with the 780.99
