Chronic fatigue in the general population: Prevalence, natural course and associations with chronic pain (the HUNT pain study).


Glette M, Stiles TC, Woodhouse A, Nilsen TIL, Landmark T

There is limited knowledge about the course of fatigue in the general population and its association with functioning and other health outcomes. Our main aim was to identify trajectories of energy and fatigue in the general population and to investigate whether chronic pain is related to a negative prognosis of chronic fatigue.
