The purpose of current study was to assess postural control and balance self-efficacy in people with fibromyalgia syndrome [FMS]. Thirty-two females with FMS completed the Activity-specific Balance Confidence Scale, Berg Balance test, NeuroCom Balance Master sensory-organization test, and limits of stability.

There was a high prevalence of reported falls and a low mean score on the Activity-specific Balance Confidence Scale.

A significant number of subjects scored below the population norm fifth percentile score on the sensory-organization test composite, visual, and vestibular sections.

Preliminary evidence suggests that women with FMS may present with deficits in postural control, sensory organization, and balance self-efficacy.
