Fatigue management

Fatigue is a feeling of constant, overwhelming exhaustion, and weakness. It is a symptom of underlying conditions and not a condition itself. This means that it’s quite common for people with neuromuscular diseases to experience fatigue. We have resources for your patients experiencing fatigue as a result of their muscle wasting condition.

Mental health support

Being diagnosed with a muscle wasting condition can often mean adjusting to a new and unexpected reality. Living with a muscle wasting condition can have an impact on every part of your patients life, including their mental health and wellbeing.
