By E Libman, et al. • www.ProHealth.com • November 8, 2007


Objective: To explore how individuals with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) describe their fatigue experience and examine how this differs from descriptions of fatigue in healthy controls.

Methods: 52 individuals with CFS and 27 controls listed words that described their fatigue. These words were grouped into 18 categories.

Results:

  • Individuals with CFS used more categories to describe their fatigue and more descriptors within each category.

  • The most popular category used by both groups was energy depletion/physical weakness.

  • CFS participants also experienced their fatigue as limiting their ability to function, frustrating, permanent/ persistent, out of their control, depressing, and pervading all aspects of their lives.

  • Controls reported that when they experienced fatigue, it was temporary, and they felt unmotivated, sleepy, and comfortable.
  • Conclusion: The multidimensional descriptive pattern characterizing the fatigue of individuals with CFS differs dramatically from the experienced fatigue of healthy individuals, suggesting their "language of fatigue" has a distinctive quality.
