Exercise can alleviate fatigue caused by multiple sclerosis, researchers say
Study finds short bouts of moderately intense activity can have big impact on tiredness levels of people with MS

Denis Campbell, health correspondent

The Guardian, Tuesday 14 January 2014

Multiple sclerosis sufferers can reduce the fatigue that accompanies their condition by undertaking short bursts of moderately intense exercise, such as walking or cycling, according to new research.

Participating in such activities even for a few minutes boosted their quality of life and reduced their extreme tiredness, patients reported in a trial of 120 people with MS living in Sheffield.

Interesting stuff.

With many of us suffering from fatigue related issues, this can serve as a reminder that even short workouts still help. Don't use fatigue as an excuse to do nothing!

The article doesn't mention the frequency of exercise for those in the study - I am guessing once a day??

PF, it appears to be three times a week. For the study, they did two supervised and one home session during weeks 1-6 and then two home and one supervised session for weeks 7-12. If you are cranking it out everyday, all the better!
