Fatigue is a feeling of near constant exhaustion that differs from the everyday tiredness that comes with the demands of a busy daily life. Unlike ordinary tiredness, it is not caused by activity or exertion and is not relieved by rest or sleep.
Over time, fatigue can be profoundly debilitating as it can have an impact on your physical, emotional and psychological wellbeing. It is a common complication of AL amyloidosis and its treatment, and living with fatigue can be challenging.
