The Comparison of the Biological Rhythms of Patients with Fibromyalgia Syndrome with Biological Rhythms of Healthy Controls. Med Sci Monit. 2020 Feb 25;26:e920462 Authors: Bulbul F, Koca I, Savas E, Dokuyucu R Abstract BACKGROUND Fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) is a rheumatic disease characterized by diffuse body pain and decreased muscle function. The aim of the present study was to compare the biological rhythms of patients with fibromyalgia syndrome with the biological rhythms of healthy controls. MATERIAL AND METHODS This was a cross-sectional, single blind, and single center case-control study. The patients with fibromyalgia were evaluated using a Fibromyalgia Impact Questionnaire (FIQ), Biological Rhythms Interview of Assessment in Neuropsychiatry (BRIAN) Scale, Visual Analog Scale (VAS), Pittsburg Sleep Quality Index (PSQI) and Beck Depression Inventory (BDI). RESULTS The study included 77 female patients with FMS, and 32 healthy female individuals as the control group. We found that the patients in the FMS group achieved higher scores in VAS, BDI, PSQI, and the BRIAN scale than the patients in the control group (P

This review identified prospective cohort studies in the general population, which showed incidence (23 papers) and risk factors (37 papers) for fibromyalgia and chronic widespread pain. Median incidence of physician diagnosed fibromyalgia in the general population was 4.3 per 1000 person-years (range = 0.33-18.8) but 14.0 (1.2-32.7) if medical illness was present. Median incidence of chronic widespread pain was 12.5 per 1000 person-years (7.2-81.6) but 67 per 1000 person years (14.8-124) for those with pre-existing pain. Risk factors included various childhood difficulties, female sex (except with pre-existing medical dis...

CONCLUSIONS: Given that primary care is the dominant healthcare setting in which opioids are prescribed for chronic noncancer pain, programs are needed to assist primary care providers to meet the rigorous requirements of guideline concordant care. The current study examined participation factors in such a program and found that certain veterans were less likely to participate than others. Identifying such veterans at the outset, in combination with intentional recruitment efforts and individualized interventions, may promote entry into PC-POP. PMID: 32421838 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSIONS: This study on dry eye confirmed but also refuted many risk factors from smaller epidemiological studies, and discovered numerous new risk factors in multiple etiological categories. The finding that dry eye symptoms are particularly common in young adults is concerning, and warrants further study. PMID: 32376389 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

This study aimed to identify biopsychosocial factors associated with fatigue, physical activity, and perceived benefits of and barriers to exercise in adults with inflammatory bowel disease and to compare them with those with fibromyalgia and healthy controls. A cross-sectional online survey was conducted. Hierarchical linear regressions were used to examine correlates of fatigue and physical activity. Analysis of variance and Kruskal–Wallis tests were used to compare levels of fatigue and physical activity between the groups. Overall, 387 participants completed the study (inflammatory bowel disease: n = 232; fibromy...

In conclusion therefore, although our review has shown no significant long-term benefits of flexibility exercise training, there is so much variability in how trials have been conducted that we cannot be sure if there will, or won ’t, be lasting benefits for people doing this form of exercise intervention. It’s also not possible to make specific recommendations about the optimal design of flexibility exercise training protocols without a larger body of high‐quality studies with clearly outlined flexibility training prot ocols that meet the recommended FITT principles and ACSM guidelines. Such studies would gr...

Abstract PURPOSE: To compare the effects of spinal stabilization exercise (SSE) plus kinesio taping (KT) and SSE alone on pain and well-being in women with fibromyalgia (FM). MATERIAL AND METHODS: Patients with FM were randomly allocated into SSE (n:19) and SSE + KT (n:17) groups. Pain and fatigue with Visual Analog Scale, health status with Fibromyalgia Impact Questionnaire, quality of life (QoL) with Nottingham Health Profile, depression with Beck Depression Inventory, sleep quality with Jenkins Sleep Scale were assessed. SSE and KT with fascial correction technique were carried out 2 days a week ...

We examined the relationship between mindfulness and sleep, and how this relationship may be mediated by depression, anxiety, and pain interference in fibromyalgia patients.MethodWe performed a cross ‐sectional analysis of baseline data from a randomized trial in fibromyalgia patients. We measured mindfulness (Five Facet Mindfulness Questionnaire), sleep quality and disturbance (Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index [PSQI], PROMIS Sleep Disturbance [PROMIS‐SD]), pain interference (PROMIS Pain Inter ference), and anxiety and depression (Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale). Pearson correlations were used to examine associati...

i Y Abstract Patients with fibromyalgia (FM) report high levels of sleep disturbance and chronic diffuse musculoskeletal pain. These patients experience diminished quality of life (QoL) due to pain and other comorbidities. Chronotype preferences have been suggested as a potential factor connecting increased severity of FM, sleep disturbances, and poor overall QoL. The present study is the first study examining the possible association between chronotype preferences, sleep disturbance, severity of FM, and QoL in patients with FM.One hundred drug-free patients diagnosed with FM participated in this cross-sectional s...
