How fatigue affects the daily lives of people affected by Multiple Sclerosis. (English)
Abstract [en]

Background:

Fatigue is a non-specific symptom that is common among individuals with Multiple sclerosis (MS) and this symptom has a major impact on their daily life. Fatigue is described as an overwhelming feeling of tiredness and becomes unpredictable from day to day.

Aim: The aim of this study was to find out how fatigue affects the daily life of people diagnosed by MS.

Method: A literature review with nine articles with qualitative approach was made. Similarities and differences were analyzed. Analyses was made according to Friberg (2012).

Results: The results showed that there is a lack of understanding of fatigue that has a major negative impact on people diagnosed with MS. The feeling of not being able to rely on their body affects the participation and the future seems uncertain.

Conclusion: There is a lack of knowledge among nurses and people in general about how people with MS-related fatigue perceive their daily lives. Further research is needed on how health professionals themselves perceive that they manage and treat patients with MS-related fatigue and what they can do to support and help these people. This information is an asset to be able to respond and meet their needs and desires.
