Fatigue In Multiple Sclerosis

Fatigue in multiple sclerosis has been defined by the 1998 Paralyzed Veterans of America Multiple Sclerosis Council for Clinical Practice Guidelines as "a subjective lack of physical and/or mental energy that is perceived by the individual or caregivers to interfere with usual or desired activities."

Acute fatigue is defined as new or significant increase in fatigue within the last 6 weeks and as a fatigue that limits functional activities or quality of life.
