Relapse/fatigue

Hi all
I hope you are all ok. I have a question please. I’m wondering if a huge increase in fatigue (plus small episodes of dizziness) could be the sign of a relapse? Do we get an increase in fatigue as a sign of a relapse?

@roxanne , I would say that an increase in an existing symptom may be a sign that you’re overdoing it or you may be dealing with an infection, e.g. temperature or UTI, which has activated your immune system, causing a “pseudo-exacerbation”.

This website contains a good definition of a relapse:-
