MS fatigue can be one of the most disabling symptoms of MS; up to 90% of people with MS experience fatigue. Fatigue can be a primary symptom (due to active inflammatory disease) or a secondary symptom (the result of other symptoms or conditions such as sleep disorders, depression, or muscle weakness).


Fatigue can often be improved by changes in lifestyle. Energy conservation counseling, mobility aids (scooter or wheelchair), air conditioning, regular exercise and medication are all ways to manage fatigue.
