Fatigue often occurs in the context of various neurological diseases, interferes with patients’ daily living, and has a major negative impact on quality of life. Currently, there exists inconsistencies in defining and assessing fatigue and a lack of evidence based treatments. Consequently, fatigue is a challenging condition for both health-care professionals and patients. This presentation includes a short summary of current definitions of fatigue, assessment tools and treatment options. Furthermore, a study on Myotonic dystrophy type 1, a neuromuscular disorder associated with severe fatigue, is presented with the aim to illustrate challenges in defining and measuring the cause and consequences of fatigue in neurological disease.
