    I don't believe ME/CFS and MS are experiencing fatigue the same way, but I think it is interesting that MS, known to be a neurological disease, can have a profound type of fatigue they believe stems from the CNS.

    Whenever I read descriptions of lassitude, I think it's similar to some of the fatigue we get. Though Jason suggested we get five fatigue 'types' rather than two.

    I think that some research to try to describe fatigue better and in different diseases would be good.

    I doubt there is any factual basis for the content of this article. People with MS may have all sorts of fatigue that has nothing much to do with the MS. This looks like something dreamt up by a healthcare marketing outfit, not science!
