Previous studies have shown that fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) is associated with low level of physical activity and exercise, which may lead to an increased risk of osteoporosis. However, studies of bone mineral density (BMD) in fibromyalgia have shown conflicting results. Thus, we conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis to better characterize the association between FMS and BMD. A comprehensive search of the databases MEDLINE and EMBASE was performed from inception through May 2016. The inclusion criterion was the observational studies' assessment of the association between fibromyalgia and bone mineral density in adult subjects...

OBJECTIVES: The provisional criteria of the American College of Rheumatology (ACR) 2010 and the 2011 self-report modification for survey and clinical research are widely used for fibromyalgia diagnosis. To determine the validity, usefulness, potential problems, and modifications required for the criteria, we assessed multiple research reports published in 2010-2016 in order to provide a 2016 update to the criteria. METHODS: We reviewed 14 validation studies that compared 2010/2011 criteria with ACR 1990 classification and clinical criteria, as well as epidemiology, clinical, and databank studies that addressed important criteria-level variables...

AIM: Fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) is defined as chronic widespread pain that cannot be accounted for by any other medical disorder. Our aim was to explore the prevalence of thyroid autoimmunity in patients with FMS. METHODS: For determining thyroid function in 207 FMS patients, we tested for the titers of free tri-iodothyronine, free thyroxine, thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH), anti-thyroid peroxidase antibody (TPOAb), anti-thyroglobulin antibody (TgAb) and anti-TSH receptor antibody (TRAb)...

Findings considering conditioned pain modulation (CPM) in chronic back pain (CBP) are contradictory. This might be because many CBP patients report pain in further areas of the body and altered CPM might influence spatial extent of pain rather than CBP per se. Therefore, we compared CPM in CBP patients with different pain extent. Fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) patients, for whom CPM-impairment is reported most consistently, were measured for comparison.Based on clinical evaluation and pain-drawings patients were categorized into chronic local back pain (CLP; n=53), chronic widespread back pain (CWP; n=32), and FMS (n=92)...

Fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS), a chronic musculoskeletal pain condition, is often accompanied by fatigue. In this study, inspired by narrative approaches to health and illness, we explore how women who have regained their health after FMS describe tiredness along a storyline from before they fell ill, through their illness, recovery process, and present-day health. The data derive from qualitative interviews with eight Norwegian women who previously suffered from FMS but who no longer had the condition at the time of interview...

: Chronic inflammation, which changes the neurotransmitter metabolism and kindles neuroendocrine system dysfunction in central nervous system, might cause fibromyalgia (FM) formation. In FM patients without traditional FM risk factors, such as hypertension, hyperlipidemia, diabetes, sleep disorder, depression, and anxiety, chronic inflammatory process is a possible risk factor for FM. Thus, we investigated whether chronic osteomyelitis (COM), a disease characterized by chronic inflammation, increases FM risk...

Female FMR1 premutation carriers (PMC) have been suggested to be at greater risk of ill health, in particular endocrine dysfunction, compared to the general population. We set out to review the literature relating to endocrine dysfunction, including premature ovarian insufficiency (POI), in female PMCs, and then to consider whether endocrine dysfunction in itself may be predictive of other illnesses in female PMCs. A systematic review and pilot data from a semi-structured health questionnaire were used. Medline, Embase, and PsycInfo were searched for papers concerning PMCs and endocrine dysfunction...
