Overview

Fatigue is considered as one of the main symptoms burdening patients with multiple sclerosis (MS). The objective of the research was to investigate the impact of fatigue on physical, cognitive and psychosocial areas of MS patientęs life, and also to focus on the importance of physiotherapy in the management of this symptom. An evaluation of the impact of fatigue on physical, mental and psychosocial areas of MS patientęs life was assessed using the Modified Fatigue Impact Scale (MFIS). Patients completed by the authors prepared questionnaire that includes questions for investigation of the sociodemographic and clinical data. Total number of investigated responders was consisted of 94 patients with MS. The average age was 46.22 years (SD ± 10.54 min.21 max. 66), from that 18 men and 76 women. In the studied groups of patients the lowest fatigue was experienced by the patients who regularly participated in physiotherapy. In the work has not been confirmed a statistically significant positive effect of regular physiotherapy to the level of fatigue.

Key words:
