Psoriatic arthritis (PsA) is a chronic inflammatory rheumatic disease with a broad clinical spectrum. PsA can affect the axial skeleton, peripheral joints, entheses, synovial sheaths of tendons, skin, nails and extra-articular organs. Tumour necrosis factor alpha blockers (TNF blockers) were a breakthrough development in the treatment of PsA. Identifying predictors of response to biological therapies in patients with PsA is of utmost importance, especially in view of the costs and potential side effects of these agents...

BACKGROUND: Fibromyalgia Syndrome (FMS) is characterized by musculoskeletal pain, muscle tenderness leading to disability, impaired quality of life (QoL), fatigue and it is accompanied by sleep disorders and psychological distress. Mind body therapies (MBT), such as Tai Ji Quan (TJQ), use different techniques to facilitate the ability of the mind to influence disease characteristics and symptoms. Some studies showed that TJQ, in patients with rheumatic diseases, particularly FMS, improved QoL, disability and psychological distress...

Sjögren's syndrome is a rare disorder of the immune system characterized by the chronic lymphocytic infiltration of the organs with exocrine secretion (lachrymal, salivary glands), but also of other tissues of the body, that can be primary or secondary and can appear alone or in association with other systemic diseases: rheumatic arthritis, systemic erythematous lupus, scleroderma or polymyositis÷dermatomyositis. The case that we are presenting is that of a 40-year-old man, who came to the Department of Rheumatology with articular, muscular, ocular, psychological and neurological symptoms...

Lyme disease is a chronic infectious disease caused by the bacteria, spirochete of the Borrelia type. Skin, nervous system, musculoskeletal system and heart may be involved in the course of the disease. The prognosis for properly treated Lyme disease is usually good. However, in about 5% of patients so called Post-Lyme disease syndrome (PLSD) develops. It is defined as a syndrome of subjective symptoms persisting despite proper treatment of Borrelia burgdorferi infection. The most common symptoms include: fatigue, muscle and joint pain, and problems with memory and concentration...

A rheumatic disease can severely impair a person's quality of life. The degree of impairment, however, is not closely related to objective indicators of disease severity. This study investigated the influence and the interplay of core psychological factors, i.e., personality and coping, on life satisfaction in patients with rheumatic diseases. Particularly, it was tested whether coping mediates the effects of personality on life satisfaction. In a cross-sectional design, 158 patients diagnosed with a rheumatic disease completed questionnaires assessing the Big 5 personality traits (BFI-10), several disease-related coping strategies (EFK) and life satisfaction (HSWBS)...

Mind body therapies (MBT) share a global approach involving both mental and physical dimensions, and focus on relationship between brain, mind, body and behavior and their effects on health and disease. MBT include concentration based therapies and movement based therapies, comprising traditional Oriental practices and somatic techniques. The greatest part of rheumatic diseases have a chronic course, leading to progressive damages at musculoskeletal system and causing physical problems, psychological and social concerns...

Quality of life (QoL) is a complex outcome and rheumatologic patients typically exhibit several comorbidities with a negative impact. In this study, we analyzed with respect to QoL for the first time a wide range of physical and psychological factors, including individual, clinical and disease-related parameters, mental health disorders, sexual dysfunction, and cardiovascular comorbidities among consecutive rheumatologic patients. QoL was evaluated using the EuroQol 5D (EQ-5D) utility index. The Health Assessment Questionnaire (HAQ) Disability Index, and the HAQ Pain Visual Analogue Scale were used as measures of physical disability and arthritis-related pain, respectively...

Fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS), usually observed commonly in females over age 30, is a rheumatic disease accompanied by extensive chronic pain. In the diagnosis of the disease non-objective psychological tests and physiological tests and laboratory test results are evaluated and clinical experiences stand out. However, these tests are insufficient in differentiating FMS with similar diseases that demonstrate symptoms of extensive pain. Thus, objective tests that would help the diagnosis are needed. This study analyzes the effect of sympathetic skin response (SSR) parameters on the auxiliary tests used in FMS diagnosis, the laboratory tests and physiological tests...

OBJECTIVE: Self-management programs for patients with chronic illnesses, including rheumatic diseases, seek to enhance self-efficacy for performing health management behaviors. No measure of self-efficacy has been validated for patients with systemic sclerosis (SSc; scleroderma). The objective of this study was to assess the validity and internal consistency reliability of the Self-Efficacy for Managing Chronic Disease (SEMCD) scale in SSc. METHODS: English-speaking SSc patients enrolled in the Scleroderma Patient-centered Intervention Network Cohort who completed the SEMCD scale at their baseline assessment between March 2014 and June 2015 were included...

OBJECTIVES: Patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), psoriatic arthritis (PsA) or unspecified polyarthritis (UA) deal with several symptoms such as joint stiffness, pain, physical limitations and fatigue. Self-efficacy is about patients' beliefs and abilities to handle the symptoms and implications of having arthritis. Patients' self-efficacy is also a phenomenon that nurses may affect through patient education. Therefore, the aim of the present study was to investigate the factors that predict self-efficacy in patients with chronic inflammatory polyarthritis...

Chronic pain experienced by patients with rheumatic conditions is recognized to contribute importantly to suffering. Multidisciplinary pain clinics that adhere to the biopsychosocial concept of pain management provide an effective treatment strategy for many with chronic pain. Other than for low back pain and fibromyalgia, little attention has been given to the specific experience of treating those with rheumatic diseases in such a setting. It is, however, reasonable to suggest that many patients with chronic rheumatic pain could benefit from exposure to a multidisciplinary pain treatment programme that incorporates components of education, exercise and activity, as well as psychological techniques and support...

Pain is associated with the different types of rheumatic syndromes because it is often the most troubling symptom of patients affected by any of these diseases. Some risk factors clearly play a major role in the clinical expression of pain and related syndromes, including genetics, age, gender, co-morbidities, traumas and psychological patterns, but there are no specific clinical, laboratory or neuroimaging markers that can indicate why and when a patient's localised pain will become chronic and widespread...
