Major depression fibromyalgia and labour force participation - a population-based cross-sectional study

Location: http://www.biomedcentral.com/1471-2474/7/4

Fibromyalgia and major depression commonly co-occur and may be related to each other at a pathophysiological level. However, each syndrome is independently and negatively associated with labour force participation. A strength of this study is that it was conducted in a large probability sample from the general population. The main...

Reproduction of overall spontaneous pain pattern by manual stimulation of active myofascial trigger points in fibromyalgia patients

Location: http://arthritis-research.com/content/13/2/R48

Conclusions The overall spontaneous fibromyalgia (FM) pain pattern can be reproduced by mechanical stimulation of active myofascial trigger points (MTPs) located in different muscles, suggesting that fibromyalgia pain is largely composed of pain arising from muscle pain and spasm. Targeting active MTPs and related perpetuating factors may be an important strategy...

Treatment of cervical myelopathy in patients with the fibromyalgia syndrome

Location: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2200733/

Some patients with fibromyalgia also exhibit the neurological signs of cervical myelopathy. We sought to determine if treatment of cervical myelopathy in patients with fibromyalgia improves the symptoms of fibromyalgia and the patients' quality of life.
Treatment of cervical myelopathy in patients with the fibromyalgia syndrome: outcomes and implications. Heffez DS,...
