Are a you a child or teenager affected by MS? Do you experience fatigue?


Researchers at King's College London are carrying out a series of studies to try to improve our understanding of fatigue in children and adolescents with MS. At the moment, fatigue is not well understood. We are trying to develop a better understanding of fatigue so we can come up with a way to help young people to manage their fatigue in the future. For the first phase of our research, we would like to interview young people (aged 18 or younger) and their primary caregivers about their experiences of fatigue. Interviews can be carried out in person or over the phone. Participants will each receive a £10 shopping voucher to thank you for taking part.


Further information and links to the information sheets can be found at the link below:




If you would like more information about the study, or to express your interest in the study, please contact the lead researcher and PhD student, Susan Carroll, at susan.carroll@kcl.ac.uk or on 0207 188 0196.

Founded in 2004, MS People UK is a community website and discussion forum by and for people with Multiple Sclerosis as well as for friends, families, supporters and those interested in this disabling condition.

If you’re newly diagnosed or want to ask about possible first symptoms, or if you’ve had Relapse Remit, Secondary or Primary Progressive MS for some time, a welcoming group of fellow MS sufferers is here to chat with you about MS symptoms, diagnosis and treatments.

The atmosphere is friendly whilst being compassionate, supportive and caring. Members also post about a variety of subjects not related to MS, as well as share jokes, talk about their hobbies, have fun, and more.
