Fatigue Can Be Objectively Measured in Multiple Sclerosis: Multipl Sklerozda Yorgunluk Objektif Olarak Ölçülebilir
Multiple Sclerosis (MS), is a chronic inflammatory demyelinating disorder affecting the white matter in the central nervous system (CNS), seen usually among young adults (20-40 years of age). Fatigue is an important symptom that affects a large portion of the patient population. The reason for fatigue seen in MS patients is still not well-known. Fatigue is a subjective and non-specific symptom; therefore, it is quite difficult to evaluate fatigue. This symptom has been reported in 75-87% of patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) and two-thirds of these patients indicated fatigue as one of the worst three common symptoms they experienced. In this review, objective measurement methods of fatigue which is a subjective complaint will be discussed.
