Klin Med (Mosk). 2004;82(9):48-52. [Article in Russian] [No authors listed]

Chronic generalized pain (CGP) as one of the diagnostic criteria of fibromyalgia is a common condition amongst the populations of Western Europe and the USA. The prevalence of CGP in these countries is 10.7-13.2%. The etiology of CGP is unclear; however, several findings suggest that this is a process of somatization that masks affective disorders. There have been no studies of the epidemiology of CGP in Russia. The study was undertaken to determine the prevalence of CGP in the Yekaterinburg adult population and to examine the relationship of CGP to its demographic characteristics and affective disorders.

A ostal cross-sectional population survey was conducted. This covered 159 persons (54 males and 105 females) aged 27 to 75 years who had been randomly selected from the election lists of Yekaterinburg residents. A questionnaire was posted to each participant in order to reveal whether a respondent had experienced pain a month before, to define its location, duration, severity, and to evaluate psychoemotional disorders. The response rate was 75.5% (120 replies). The prevalence of CGP was 13.3%.

There was no relationship of the sex of a respondent to CGP. The latter was shown to be associated with age. There was also its significant association with psychoemotional disorders. CGP is a common condition in the Yekateringburg population, which occurs in every 8 adult residents, more frequently in those aged above 43 years. The individuals who suffer from CGP exhibit a high level of psychological distress. PMID: 15540424 [PubMed - in process]
