Do You Feel Tired all the time? or it becoming severe?

Are You Getting More Tired Than Usual during or After An Activity?

Do You Feel that You’re too tired to do the things you normally do?

Do Your Arms and Legs Feel Heavy and Hard To Move?

Do You feel sad, depressed, or irritable?


Any of those symptoms familiar? If Yes, then you must Talk to your Cancer Care Team or your Physiotherapist about these Signs and symptoms as this might be Cancer-Related Fatigue (CRF). The fatigue that comes with cancer, is different from the fatigue of daily life.

FATIGUE means having less energy to do the things you need or want to do. Everyday, normal fatigue usually doesn’t last long. It often gets better when you rest. Cancer-related fatigue is worse and it causes more distress. Approximately 80 to 100% of people with cancer report that they experience cancer-related fatigue during and after chemotherapy and radiotherapy.

It’s not the tired feeling people remember having before they had cancer. People describe it as feeling weak, listless, drained, or “washed out.” Some may feel too tired to eat, walk to the bathroom, or even use the TV remote. It can be hard to think, as well as move your body. Rest does not make it go away, and just a little activity can be exhausting. For some people, this kind of fatigue causes more distress than pain, nausea, vomiting, or depression.

Cancer-related fatigue is worse than everyday fatigue. It lasts longer and sleep doesn’t make it better: It’s Common & yet unpredictable. People describe it as overwhelming, affecting every part of their lives.



Researchers have shown that Physical Activity such as Supervised exercises (eg, aerobic, resistance and stretching exercise) reduces cancer-related fatigue. Further, findings suggested that combined aerobic and resistance exercise regimens with or without stretching should be included as part of rehabilitation programs for people who have been diagnosed with cancer.
