Sjögren Europe (SE) and The British Sjögren’s Syndrome Association (BSSA) hosted a live webinar about fatigue in Sjögren’s.
Chronic fatigue is one of the most prevalent and debilitating symptoms in primary SS (pSS). Approximately 70% of pSS patients suffer from disabling fatigue, which is associated with reduced health-related quality of life. Fatigue in primary SS clearly differs from ordinary tiredness. We describe it as an ever-present, fluctuating, and nonrelievable lack of vitality being beyond one’s own control. In this webinar, Prof. Fai Ng will review the instruments used for evaluating pSS-related fatigue, the current understanding of the underlying psychosocial and physiological mechanisms of fatigue in pSS and the therapeutic strategies that have been studied in the management of fatigue in pSS.
The webinar is the kick-off event of Sjögren Europe activities for the World Sjögren’s Day 2021 on July 23rd. This year the topic is Fatigue and several events about this topic will be implemented from June 14th in order to celebrate this day.
