[Fibromyalgia. Diagnostics - Disease Approach - Therapy.] (Article in German)

Fibromyalgia is a complex of symptoms predominantly affecting females and consisting of widespread pain. Etiology and pathogenesis are not sufficiently known yet.

However, there is the assumption that Fibromyalgia is looked at as being an illness with biological, psychological, and social aspects. Therefore, the treatment of Fibromyalgia calls for a multimodal therapy approach.

The importance of Fibromyalgia has been recognized within the German health system by creating the new ICD code M79.70 and by assigning Fibromyalgia its own rheumatologic DRG (I79Z).*

In future research of Fibromyalgia, special attention needs to be placed upon gender-specific problems.

[ICD stands for International Classification of Diseases, an official system used by hospitals for coding diagnoses and procedures, and for death notices. DRG stands for Diagnosis-Related Group. This is a system used to classify hospital cases into one of hundreds of groups that are expected to have similar hospital resource utilization use. In the U.S., Medicare uses DRG groupings as part of the prospective payment system.]
