Directions: Many individuals can experience a sense of unusual or excessive tiredness whenever
they become ill, receive treatment, or recover from their illness/treatment. This unusual sense of
tiredness is not usually relieved by either a good night’s sleep or by rest. Some call this
symptom "fatigue" to distinguish it from the usual sense of tiredness.
