Fibro myalgia

Anna Ghizzani, Cinzia Orlandini, Maria G Bernardi, Gabriele Cevenini, Stefano Luisi
Common gynecological and dermatological conditions resulting in sexual pain are seen often in gynecological practice and are easily diagnosed with visual observation and laboratory tests. The lower genital tract diseases we are referring to are: vaginitis, vaginoses, dermatoses, hypoestrogenism and endometriosis. All of them affect the vaginal mucosa with diverse mechanisms, their effects lasting for only few days or many months. Furthermore, they change the women's sense of well being sometimes significantly and for a long period...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the histologic features of vestibular biopsies from patients affected by fibro myalgia (FM), or vulvodynia (VD), or the their association (FM-VD) in order to facilitate differential diagnosis among conditions that present sexual pain with similar clinical characteristics. STUDY DESIGN: Fourty-four women already diagnosed with FM were recruited to evaluate the presence of sexual pain not owing to FM. Fourteen women affected by sexual pain of unknown origin who came to our department requesting treatment were also recruited...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effectiveness and safety of transcranial direct current stimulation for fibro-myalgia. METHODS: Databases, conference records and registered trials were searched for articles published from the date of establishment of the database through to October 2015. Six randomized controlled trials (n=192) of transcranial direct current stimulation for fibromyalgia were included in the current study. DATA EXTRACTION: Two researchers independently screened the literature, assessed methodological quality using the Cochrane Collaboration's tool, and extracted data...

OBJECTIVE: This study systematically summarizes biochemical biomarker research in non-traumatic musculoskeletal disorders (MSD). Two research questions guided the review: (i) Are there biochemical markers associated with neck and upper-extremity MSD? and (ii) Are there biochemical markers associated with the severity of neck and upper-extremity MSD? METHODS: A literature search was conducted in PubMed and SCOPUS, and 87 studies met primary inclusion criteria. Following a quality screen, data were extracted from 44 articles of sufficient quality...

OBJECTIVES: To investigate the influence of psychiatric comorbidity on sexual satisfaction in premenopausal and postmenopausal female affected by fibro-myalgia (FM). METHODS: We enrolled 100 FM females and 40 age-matched healthy females. Psychiatric diagnoses were carried out using the Structured Clinical Interview for DSM-IV Axis I Disorders-Patient Edition; sexual satisfaction was evaluated using the Index of Sexual Satisfaction (ISS), clinical assessment included the Fibromyalgia Impact Questionnaire (FIQ), tender point (TP) count and pain evaluation by means of a visual analogue scale (VAS)...

Fibromyalgia is characterized by widespread pain and tenderness; however, comorbid cognitive difficulties are a common complaint among patients. Known as fibro fog or dyscognition, this symptom comprises difficulties with complex cognitive processes including memory, executive function, concentration and attention. While the mechanisms that initiate and maintain these cognitive deficits are still largely unknown, recent research has increased the understanding of subjective symptoms and objectively-determined deficits in cognitive performance...

INTRODUCTION: Although medical literature has devoted little attention to sleep compared to other symptoms of fibro-myalgia, the American College of Rheumatology has recently proposed that sleep should be a central aspect of the clinical assessment of fibromyalgia. Despite this, no comprehensive reviews have encompassed the physiopathological, psycho-social and therapeutic aspects of the relationship between sleep and fibromyalgia. DEVELOPMENT: A bibliographic search of the terms 'fibromyalgia' and 'sleep' was made in the platforms Scopus and OVID (Medline, PsychINFO and Ovid Nursing Database) from 1 January 1990 to 31 August 2011...

The purpose of current study was to assess postural control and balance self-efficacy in people with fibro-myalgia syndrome [FMS]. Thirty-two females with FMS completed the Activity-specific Balance Confidence Scale, Berg Balance test, NeuroCom Balance Master sensory-organization test, and limits of stability. There was a high prevalence of reported falls and a low mean score on the Activity-specific Balance Confidence Scale. A significant number of subjects scored below the population norm fifth percentile score on the sensory-organization test composite, visual, and vestibular sections...

Fibromyalgia (FM) conceptualized by the American College of Rheumatology is characterized by long-lasting chronic widespread pain and stiffness of the fibro-muscular system associated with various unidentified symptoms. Since most of the patients are female and the onset and clinical course of FM involves various kinds of bio-psychosocial stress factors, it is very important to consider the psychosomatic background of the patient. The symptom of FM is not readily improved with conventional analgesic drugs, antirheumatic agents or various kinds of physiotherapy, however current guidelines recommend tricyclic antidepressants, SSRIs and SNRIs as first-line therapies to treat the multiple symptom of the FM...

OBJECTIVES: Fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) has been associated with various psychiatric and other, ill-defined disorders. We recently showed that fibromyalgia is more prevalent in men suffering from combat-related Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). In this paper we analyze the relationship between engagement in physical activity, the psycho-metric traits of PTSD and the future development of FMS. METHODS: Fifty-five male patients, all known to have combat-related PTSD, were investigated for the presence of fibro-myalgia according to the American College of Rheumatology (ACR) criteria...

BACKGROUND: Peripheral neuropathies in various locations are described as complications after anesthesia and surgery. This is the first case report of temporary bilateral occipital neuropathy from positioning for thyroid surgery in a morbidly obese patient. METHODS: A 48-year-old women with a history of depression, fibro-myalgia, asthma, sleep apnea, diabetes mellitus and morbid obesity (127 kg, 165 cm) underwent 4 hours anesthesia with propofol/remifentanil without muscle relaxation for thyroid surgery...
