Relationship between interoceptive mechanisms and fatigue in multiple sclerosis

Takeaway

  • Fatigue is associated with disruptions in interoceptive mechanisms in people with multiple sclerosis (MS).

Why this matters

  • Fatigue is a common symptom in people with MS; recent publications suggest a relationship between fatigue in MS and disruptions in interoceptive mechanisms.

  • This relationship has not been empirically evaluated, and further understanding may lead to improved treatments for people with MS and improvements in clinical outcomes.
