Normal fatigue 18 simply wholesome tire; exercise should always be kept within the limits of pathological fatigue, in Wth the sensory over-tire, as fatigue-anaesthesia, marks the subtle beginning of danger. The natural safeguard is in the early recognition of the other mental effects of fatigue.
These cons1derations go to prove the prime significance of the mental symptoms as a guide to the prophylaxis and treatment of neurasthenia.
