This issue, we get in gear with racing star Billy Monger as he takes on new challenges alongside some of the biggest names from Team GB. It’s normal to feel nervous about returning to social situations, especially if you or a loved one has been shielding. A charity and someone experiencing social anxiety share their advice.

After an estimated rise of more than 4.6 million unpaid carers during the pandemic, voices from the community share what needs to change in social care. Plus, we look at the importance of taking a break, highlighting some of the best staycation spots the UK has to offer. All of this and much more in the latest issue of Enable Magazine.

New fatigue guide from the MS International Federation

The MS International Federation’s (MSIF) International Resource Group, from MS Australia, MS Society UK and ARSEP Foundation resources have put together a new guide about MS fatigue. 

MS fatigue is one of the most common MS symptoms and one of the hardest to manage. 

MS fatigue is not only difficult to define but it is an invisible symptom (in other words, others can’t see it). This can make it difficult to understand or explain to others who may interpret it in the wrong way. It is often described as heavy tiredness (lassitude), general weakness or lack of energy but for some, it may be described as total exhaustion.

The reality is that every definition is correct because the experience is subjective and everyone experiences MS fatigue differently. Fatigue in people with MS is complex but the added burdens of worry about COVID-19, the stresses of isolation and consequential lack of exercise is making the problem worse for many people.

The guide is packed full of tips for managing MS fatigue, including exercises you can do at home and a fatigue diary.

It comes in eight languages and you can download it from the MSIF website here: https://www.msif.org/resource/fatigue-an-invisible-symptom-of-ms
