Association between Fatigue, Severity of Injury, Duration of Injury, and Underlying Factors

Abstract:
The consequences of fatigue are many-fold and can present significant barriers to recovery. Estimates of the prevalence of fatigue among individuals with traumatic brain injury living in the community are estimated to range between 50% and 80%. This study will expand upon the current literature and correlate the fatigue experienced by individuals at least one year post-TBI, with potential contributing factors: concurrent medications, sleep patterns, endocrine findings, affective symptomatology, activity patterns and limitations, and substance use.
