Introduction: Is there one definition of fatigue?

  • Sensation of fatigue (subjective) vs. disturbance of a function (objective)
  • Acute fatigue (fatigability) vs. chronic fatigue (fatigue)
  • Is fatigue necessarily a bad thing?

Fatigue, a major symptom in many chronic diseases

  • The most frequent symptom with disastrous consequences

  • Can deteriorated resistance to fatigability explain fatigue?
  • Beyond the common aspects: specificities of some pathologies (Cancer, Multiple Sclerosis, Intensive Care Units)

Physical activity: the miracle cure?

  • Drugs and non-drug treatments (except PA)
  • Resting: The vicious circle
  • Why can PA alleviate fatigue?
  • One size does not fit all: a need for tailoring the intervention
