Authors: Yılmaz R, Üstün D, Tuncer Uzun S, Reisli R, Türk Ş Abstract Tardive dyskinesia and tardive dystonia are caused by dopamine receptor blocking agents, mostly antipsychotics and sometimes antidepressants or calcium channel blockers. Duloxetine is a serotonin-noradrenaline reuptake inhibitor used in the treatment of diabetic neuropathic pain and fibromyalgia, as well as major depression. In this case, we aimed to discuss the tardive dyskinesia-like appearance of a patient using duloxetine due to fibromyalgia. PMID: 30403275 [PubMed - in process]

Conclusion: Our analyses revealed that thermal therapy and LLLT had a partial effect on pain relief in FM patients, and this beneficial effect may have a positive influence on FM patients' health status. PMID: 30402199 [PubMed - in process]

Some people use a transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) unit to treat pain. This device works by sending electrical impulses through the skin. It may give people relief from the painful symptoms of arthritis, multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, endometriosis, and other conditions. Learn more here.

CONCLUSIONS: Different, but related, areas of the central nervous system have been described as altering not only the functional but also the structural form, in patients with fibromyalgia. These involved areas extend beyond the pain circuits, which would explain the variety of symptoms in patients, in addition to the characteristic pain reported by them.

This study aimed to unravel the modulating role of depression in response execution and inhibition in FM using an emotional go/no-go task. Materials and Methods: In total, 17 FM patients with low depression, 18 FM patients with high depression, and 18 pain-free controls were included. Pain, happy, and neutral faces were pseudorandomly presented, and participants were asked to respond to male faces (go trials) by pressing a button, and to inhibit their responses if female faces were presented (no-go trials). Results: FM patients with high depression showed lower positive affect scores, higher negative affect and pain ...

AbstractEvidence of symptomatic treatment for fibromyalgia (FM) is very low. Whole body cryotherapy (WBC) modulates different neurotransmitters, which might have a role in pain alleviation and could exert an effect on FM. Our aim was to evaluate the efficacy of WBC for the control of pain and impact of disease in FM. For this we run an open, randomized, crossover trial of Cryosense TCT ™ cabin vs rest. Patients with FM according to ACR criteria were recruited consecutively from general practices. Trial endpoints were change (∆) in pain after 2 and 4 weeks, measured by a visual analogue scale (VAS), ∆ burden ...

Mirtazapine has been prescribed off-label to fibromyalgia patients who have not responded to other treatments. However, a recent systemic review found no difference between mirtazapine and placebo for these patients, and any potential benefits from mirtazapine may not outweigh its potential harm, including drowsiness, weight gain and liver damage...

Sammour, Mohamed M. Abdel-DaimAbstractChronic pain is one of the most common clinical presentations in the primary care settings. In the US, Fibromyalgia (FM) affects about 1–3% of adults and commonly occurs in adults between the ages of 40–50 years. FM causes widespread muscular pain and tenderness with hyperalgesia and allodynia and may be associated with other somatic complaints.Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) has been ...
