21. Treatment of fatigue in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis/motor neuron disease.

Treatment of fatigue in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis/motor neuron disease. BACKGROUND: Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as motor neuron disease (MND), is terminal, progressive neurological condition for which there are no curative treatments. Among people with ALS/MND, fatigue is a common and debilitating symptom, which is characterised by reversible motor weakness and whole-body tiredness that is only partially relieved by rest. The effectiveness of pharmacological or non (...) -pharmacological treatments for fatigue in ALS/MND is not yet established. OBJECTIVES: To assess the effects of pharmacological and non-pharmacological interventions for fatigue in ALS/MND. SEARCH METHODS: We searched the following databases on 5 September 2017: Cochrane Neuromuscular Specialised Register, CENTRAL, MEDLINE, Embase, PsycINFO, CINAHL Plus, and ERIC. We also searched two clinical trials registries. SELECTION CRITERIA: We selected randomised and quasi-randomised controlled trials of any

Fatigue Fatigue | ONS Search the ONS website Fatigue Fatigue PEP Topics Fatigue has been defined as a distressing, persistent, and subjective sense of tiredness or exhaustion that is not proportional to activity and interferes with usual function. Fatigue is one of the most common problems in patients with cancer. It may be related to the disease itself or cancer treatment and may continue beyond completion of treatment among long-term cancer survivors. Among people with cancer, 80% to 100 (...) % report experiencing fatigue. Fatigue may be an isolated problem or occur as one element in a cluster of symptoms, such as pain, depression, dyspnea, anorexia, and sleep disturbance.

Guided graded exercise self-help plus specialist medical care versus specialist medical care alone for chronic fatigue syndrome (GETSET): a pragmatic randomised controlled trial. BACKGROUND: Graded exercise therapy is an effective and safe treatment for chronic fatigue syndrome, but it is therapist intensive and availability is limited.

METHODS: In this pragmatic randomised controlled trial, we recruited (...) adult patients (18 years and older) who met the UK National Institute for Health and Care Excellence criteria for chronic fatigue syndrome from two secondary-care clinics in the UK. Patients were randomly assigned to receive specialist medical care (SMC) alone (control group) or SMC with additional guided graded exercise self-help (GES).
