Fatigue is a common complaint amongst patients who come to the clinic seeking help and advice. Fatigue, which is also commonly referred to as tiredness (although these terms do not actually have identical meanings), refers to the sensation of exhaustion during or after usual activities, or even inadequate energy to begin these activities in the first place. In its most severe form, ongoing fatigue can heavily impact the daily activities of a patient and significantly reduce their quality of life.
