Fatigue can be caused by a range of health conditions, including chronic fatigue syndrome (myalgic encephalomyelitis, or ME), a severe and disabling tiredness that goes on for at least six months.
Note: Although disablement must be caused by a physical or mental health condition, it is the needs and difficulties that result which will determine entitlement rather than the condition itself. As a result, whilst the case law below may be of assistance, it will be important to also look at the case law relating to the activities and issues that affect you too.
