Factors that exacerbate fatigue

We find that there are various factors triggering and exacerbating fatigue symptoms. We explain the contribution of each factor in the video below, using a ‘fatigue pie’.

We realise that no two fatigue patients are the same, and therefore no two personalised fatigue pies would look the same. Perhaps you feel that some of the factors described in the fatigue pie do not apply to you, and equally, you may think that some slices of the pie are more pronounced. Your personalised fatigue management should involve the factors that constitute your unique ME/CFS experience, and the coping strategies tailored to relieving those factors.
