Fatigue presents a major dilemma for people in chronic pain. From an energy-management perspective, the way you currently do things can be as important as what and how much you actually do. If you lack planning before engaging in some physical activity, you may waste valuable energy – energy better used in managing your pain. With limited energy, it is easy to get sucked into doing more when you feel better (overdoing) and doing less when you feel worse (underdoing). The pattern of overdoing/underdoing activity is very common for people in pain.

One way to identify if you have a fatigue and energy management problem as the result of poor activity pacing, is to answer the following questions.
  

When your pain increases sharply, how concerned are you that your pain will interfere with other activities 
not at all concerned                                 very concerned

you will not accomplish anything else the rest of the day
not at all concerned                                 very concerned

the rest of the day will be shot
not at all concerned                                 very concerned

you will not get anything done
not at all concerned                                 very concerned
