Objectives: Although fatigue is experienced by everyone, its definition and classification remains under debate. Methods: A review of the previously published data on fatigue. Results: Fatigue is influenced by age, gender, physical condition, type of food, latency to last meal, mental status, psychological conditions, personality type, life experience, and the health status of an individual. Fatigue may not only be a symptom but also a measurable and quantifiable dimension, also known as…

Fatigue in CKD: Epidemiology, Pathophysiology, and Treatment.
TLDR
Targeting higher hemoglobin levels with erythropoiesis-stimulating agents may improve fatigue, but potential adverse cardiovascular effects preclude their use to solely treat fatigue without the presence of another indication.
THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN SELF-REPORTED FATIGUE, FATIGABILITY, AND SLEEP QUALITY IN INDIVIDUALS WITH MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS
TLDR
The approach undertaken in the current body of research was under the notion that a multidisciplinary approach would seem best to optimally assess fatigue in PwMS, called the Neurological Fatigue Index (NFI-MS).
Fatigue, Sleep, and Autoimmune and Related Disorders
TLDR
How inflammation and the central nervous system contribute to fatigue is described and potential mechanisms involved in fatigue that are likely exhibited in autoimmune and related diseases are suggested.
Fatigue in Systemic Lupus Erythematosus: An Update on Its Impact, Determinants and Therapeutic Management
TLDR
The management of fatigue in patients with SLE should rely upon a person-centered approach, with targeted interventions, and some pharmacological treatments used to control disease activity have demonstrated beneficial effects upon fatigue.
MASTERTHESIS Fatigue and Generalized Anxiety Disorder ( GAD ) : A Systematic Review of Etiology , Diagnosis and Treatment

Background and objective: Fatigue is a common human experience with diverse types and variations which often goes along with psychopathology. One of the most common psychopathological disorders that
Fatigability and the Role of Neuromuscular Impairments in Chronic Kidney Disease
TLDR
A conceptual model is proposed to extend current understandings of fatigability by considering the interactions among fatigue, perceived fatigability, and performance fatigability and provides a novel conceptual framework to advance the understanding of fatigue in CKD and ESKD patients.
Fatigue Profiles in Patients with Multiple Sclerosis are Based on Severity of Fatigue and not on Dimensions of Fatigue
TLDR
Study results show that in patients with a treatment indication for primary MS-related fatigue, fatigue profiles are based on severity and not on the various dimensions of fatigue.

TLDR
Reliable measures of fatigability beyond a careful clinical examination, such as physiological changes monitored by cerebral functional neuroimaging techniques and more standardized central and peripheral electrical and magnetic stimulation paradigms, may help determine the mechanisms of activity-dependent weakening and lead to specific therapies.
Fatigue and fibromyalgia syndrome: clinical and neurophysiologic pattern.
A Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) severity score based on case designation criteria.
TLDR
Plotting Fatigue severity versus Sum8 produced an internally consistent classifying system and was a necessary step for translating symptom profiles into fatigue phenotypes and their pathophysiological mechanisms.
The prevalence and meaning of fatigue in rheumatic disease.
TLDR
Fatigue is common across all rheumatic diseases, associates with all measures of distress, and is a predictor of work dysfunction and overall health status.

    Multiple sclerosis
  • 2003
TLDR
In patients with multiple sclerosis, fatigue is the most common symptom and one of the most disabling features, and several pharmacologic agents have been evaluated for their ability to reduce MS-related fatigue, including amantadine, central nervous system stimulants (pemoline), and the novel wake-promoting agent modafinil.
Fatigue and fatigability in neurologic illnesses
TLDR
A unified taxonomy and a novel assessment approach to addressing distinct aspects of fatigue and fatigability in clinical and research settings are proposed and it is suggested that many research questions may be better addressed by using multiple measures.
Fatigue in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis: Frequency and associated factors
TLDR
Fatigue was frequent in ALS, greater in the youngest patients and worsened during follow‐up, possibly indicating that ALS related fatigue is an independent factor, which deserves individualized approach and treatment.
Is fatigue an independent and persistent symptom in patients with Parkinson disease?
TLDR
The authors confirmed the high prevalence of mental fatigue in patients with Parkinson disease (PD).
