Fatigue after acquired brain injury
Fatigue is one of the most common and distressing of symptoms following an acquired brain injury and is common to injuries of all severities, from the mildest to the most severe. Persistent and recurrent tiredness is a major problem and is associated with a low return-to-employment rate and higher stroke and mortality rates.
Unfortunately, experts still understand very little about the pathology of fatigue following acquired brain injury. However, central fatigue is considered to be attributable to damage to the central nervous system, and depletion of hormones and neurotransmitters is undoubtedly a factor. Peripheral fatigue is considered distinct from central fatigue and is characterised by reduced ability to contract muscles.
All types of fatigue may be characterised by the following:
- Slowed processing speed
- Short and erratic attention span
- Anxiety and depression
- Sleep disturbance
- Executive dysfunction
Many people who experience fatigue following an acquired brain injury report "shutting off" and having an inability to respond to sensory stimuli. This is sometimes described as "mental fatigue".
