Is fibromyalgia a distinct clinical entity? The clinical investigator's evidence.

  [ 43 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ]
By Russell IJ • www.ProHealth.com • September 1, 1999


SUBJECTIVE: Chronic widespread pain with multiple tender points (fibromyalgia syndrome) is a common clinical presentation. Criteria for inclusion of fibromyalgia patients into research studies have led to a medical model that integrates symptoms, signs, epidemiology, pathogenesis, responses to treatment, and prognosis. Controversy regarding fibromyalgia relates mostly to issues of compensation.

THEORETICAL: The diagnosis of fibromyalgia has been challenged as an inappropriate extraction from an epidemiological continuum of subjective discomfort. There are many conditions in which normally distributed measures exhibit distinctly unique outcomes at their extremes.

OBJECTIVE: Since fibromyalgia patients exhibit lowered pain thresholds, the process of nociception was studied. Samples of fibromyalgia urine, blood, and spinal fluid disclosed abnormalities consistent with a biomedical model of failed neuroregulatory inhibition, altered nociception, central sensitization, andallodynia. All three views support fibromyaglia as a distinct clinical syndrome deserving of informed medical care and continued research to better understand chronic widespread pain.
