Linking non-restorative sleep and activity interference through pain catastrophizing and pain severity: An intra-day process model among individuals with fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia (FM) is a chronic widespread musculoskeletal pain condition that predominantly affects women and interferes with individuals ’ daily functioning.58,80 Repeated activity interference can substantially limit one's successful adjustment to chronic pain through the development of negative self-schema and reduction of rewards that stem from engaging in meaningful and enjoyable activities.23,26 Hence, a central target of chro nic pain management is helping individuals increase their engagement in and performance of important daily activities.

Conclusions: Monitoring the affective dimension of pain should be included in an integrated approach to pain, and Hatha yoga may be beneficial in the pain management of FM participants. PMID: 31370034 [PubMed - in process]

Publication date: Available online 17 July 2019Source: Best Practice &Research Clinical RheumatologyAuthor(s): Sizheng Steven Zhao, Stephen J. Duffield, Nicola J. GoodsonAbstractFibromyalgia (FM) is one of the most common conditions that rheumatologists encounter. It is characterised by chronic widespread pain, fatigue, sleep disturbances and impaired cognition. The prevalence of comorbid FM among populations with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), axial spondyloarthritis (axSpA) and psoriatic arthritis (PsA) are considerably higher than among the general population, with pooled prevalence estimates of 18–24% in RA, 14&n...

Abstract Although the life-course concept of risk markers as potential etiological influences is well established in epidemiology, it has not featured in academic publications or clinical practice in the context of chronic widespread pain (CWP) and fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS). Studies of risk markers are required considerations for evaluation of patients and for research because there is no single cause, pathological feature, laboratory finding, or biomarker for CWP or FMS. The early-life risk markers identified by extensive literature review with best evidence for potential causal influence on the development and...

Publication date: June 2019Source: Neurophysiologie Clinique, Volume 49, Issue 3Author(s): Frédéric Viseux, Pascal Charpentier, Antoine LemaireFibromyalgia Syndrome (FMS) is a chronic and multi-faceted disease with an unknown aetiology. Clinical symptoms consisting of widespread pain, generalized muscular hypertonia, fatigue, sleep disturbances, impaired cognition and poor physical fitness compromise the autonomy, function and independence of these patients [1]. Postural control is affected and balance is impaired, leading to a greater risk and frequency of falls [2]. Pain in FMS may be associated with hypere...

Conclusion: These findings support the hypothesis that in FM a deteriorated function of cortical inhibition, indexed by a higher SICI parameter, a lower function of the DPMS, together with a higher level of BDNF indicate that FM has different pathological substrates from depression. They suggest that an up-regulation phenomenon of intracortical inhibitory networks associated with a disruption of the DPMS function occurs in FM. Introduction Major depressive disorder (MDD) and fibromyalgia (FM) present overlapped symptoms. Although the connection between these two disorders has not been elucidated yet, the disruption...

Abstract Fibromyalgia is a chronic complex syndrome of non-articulate origin characterized by musculoskeletal pain, painful tender points, sleep problems and co-morbidities including depression, migraine. The etiopathogenesis of fibromyalgia is complex, variable and remains inconclusive. The etiological factors that have been defined include stress, genetic predisposition and environmental components. As per the reports of the American College of Rheumatology (ACR) the prevalence of fibromyalgia varies from 2 to 22% among the general population with poor diagnostic features primarily pain. Fibromyalgia encompasses...

CONCLUSIONS: At the moment, ozone therapy seems a treatment that, also because without any side effect, is possible to be proposed to patients with fibromyalgia that are not obtaining adequate results from other available treatments and it can be considered as complementary/integrative medicine.

The cell phone blares out reveille. Your eyes open reluctantly and you realize it’s morning, having only gone to bed four hours earlier because of a late-night party. You creak out of bed to ready yourself for work, arthritic joints hurting much more than usual. A painful day lies ahead even after taking ibuprofen. Does this sound familiar? If it does, you are not alone. Nearly 70% of Americans report getting insufficient sleep on a regular basis, and approximately 20% of Americans suffer from chronic pain. Recently, the intersection between these two conditions has become more apparent. The association between sleep...

Authors: Clauw DJ, Essex MN, Pitman V, Jones KD Abstract Chronic pain is a common public health problem that has a detrimental impact on patient health, quality of life (QoL), and function, and poses a substantial socioeconomic burden. Evidence supports redefinition of chronic pain as a distinct disease entity, not simply a symptom of injury or illness. Chronic pain conditions are characterized by three types of pain pathophysiology - i.e., nociceptive, neuropathic, and centralized pain/central sensitization -influenced by a cluster of coexisting psychosocial factors. Negative risk/vulnerability factors, e.g., mood...
