Fatigue booklet

Fatigue can be difficult to describe. It’s not just an ordinary tiredness that you might experience after a hard day’s work or strenuous exercise. Many people with MS describe their fatigue as an overwhelming tiredness with no obvious cause.

MS related fatigue might, for example, make you feel extremely tired after very little activity, or you may even wake up feeling as tired as you did when you went to sleep.

There are a variety of ways to manage your fatigue and reduce its impact on your daily life. This booklet discusses:

  • ways to describe your fatigue
  • ways to analyse your fatigue
  • ways to minimise the effects of fatigue on your daily life

This booklet is also available to order as an audio CD.
