How To Manage My Fatigue After A Stroke

“How can I manage my fatigue after a stroke?” If you’re a stroke survivor, this is a common question we’ve been asked by survivors on their stroke rehabilitation journey. It must be said, fatigue after a stroke can be an ongoing stroke symptom that many stroke survivors battle with everyday. So you’re not alone.

Some days are good and some days it’s a herculean effort to get out of bed.

There are many questions that come up when we meet and work with folk who are trying to breakthrough the limitations that fatigue places upon them.
