There have been over 942 responses to the Fatigue Severity Scale. Let’s analyze the scores to look for seasonal lupus fatigue.
In previous posts, we have looked at why we use the FSS to measure lupus fatigue and some initial results from the tool. Now that there are a large number of responses spread across seasons, we will break the data into two groups to look specifically at the impact of winter on lupus fatigue.
Note: LupusCorner uses a statistically valid measure of fatigue (the FSS), and proper statistical calculations. But, these results are NOT equal to scientific studies. In particular, no steps were taken to ensure that the participants were a representative sample of all people with lupus and the scale is available to all people.
