J Psychosom Res. 2005 Mar;58(3):263-9. Glass JM, Park DC, Minear M, Crofford LJ. Institute for Social Research, University of Michigan, 426 Thompson Street, Ann Arbor, MI 48106, United States; Department of Psychiatry, University of Michigan, 426 Thompson Street, Ann Arbor, MI 48106, United States. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to investigate memory beliefs and their relationship to actual memory function in fibromyalgia (FM) patients. METHODS: Twenty-three FM patients, 23 age- and education-matched controls, and 22 older controls completed the Metamemory in Adulthood (MIA) questionnaire, which assessed beliefs about seven aspects of memory function. Group differences on the seven scales were assessed, and scores on the capacity scale were correlated with objective memory performance. RESULTS: FM patients reported lower memory capacity and more memory deterioration than did either control group. Patients reported lower control or self-efficacy over memory, higher achievement motivation, higher strategy use, and higher anxiety about memory than age-matched controls did. Among the patients, perceived capacity, achievement motivation, and self-efficacy were significantly correlated with objective memory performance on a recall task. CONCLUSION: FM patients' complaints about memory function have some accuracy. PMID: 15865951 [PubMed - in process]
