Persistent fatigue in well women

  [ 41 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ]
www.ProHealth.com • January 10, 1995


Fatigue is the subjective report of a sustained sense of exhaustion
with reduced motivation and capacity for physical and/or
mental activity. Although factors associated with fatigue have
been explored in specific patient populations, minimal study
has been devoted to exploring both the magnitude of fatigue
and associated variables among women generally thought to be
well.

This cross-sectional, descriptive study examined the
relationship of behavioral, socio-demographic, and emotional
factors to subjective ratings of fatigue among women in the
community who perceived themselves as being fatigued but
otherwise healthy. A convenience sample of 155 adult women
completed the Piper Fatigue Self-Report Scale (PFS), the Beck
Depression Inventory (BDI), and an investigator-designed
questionnaire that collected behavioral and socio-demographic
data. Correlation and regression analyses were used with
fatigue as measured by the PFS as the outcome variable.


Statistically significant relationships were noted between PFS
and BDI scores as well as PFS and sleep pattern, rest quality,
and perceived stress. Construction of a multiple regression
model revealed an adjusted R2 of .43 with the BDI score
serving as the major predictor variable for fatigue.
Persistent fatigue is a consistent element in the lives of
many women. As such it can significantly undermine women's
quality of life.
