Fatigue in LUPUS : Explained

Posted Apr 22 2010 7:40am

The article I am reading at the LFA blog is quite timely. I have been suffering from fatigue this past few days. Or I think a month now. I know that fatigue is part of lupus as well as depression. And the article explains what lupus patients undergoes.

According to the article which was written by Dr. Barbara Segal,

Fatigue has physical (needing to rest, weakness), emotional (decreased interest, low motivation) and cognitive aspects (for example: problems with concentration). The physical and emotional impact of fatigue is not the same for each individual and can be present to varying degrees in the same person at different times. Also, the words used to describe fatigue such as tiredness, sleepiness, and exhaustion mean different things to different people.

Man, I just wished the fatigue will go away so that I can enjoy our vacation and won’t worry my husband.
