  [ 33 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ]
By Ostensen M, Schei B • www.ProHealth.com • February 18, 1997


The study, which was part of a cardiovascular screening programme of
40-42 year old women organised by the National Health
Screening Service, wanted to assess the prevalence of
locomotor complaints in Middle-Norway. Forty-nine percent of
the respondents reported the occurrence of musculoskeletal
disorders. Low back pain and myalgia was the most and chronic
inflammatory joint diseases the least frequent. Between
healthy women and some groups of women reporting
musculoskeletal disorders, significant differences in
sociodemographic background, workload, working ability, and
health care utilisation emerged. Among lifestyle factors,
smoking was significantly more frequent for women reporting
fibromyalgia. Analysing the occurrence of symptoms and
diseases in the genital tract revealed that a significantly
higher proportion of women reporting musculoskeletal disease
answered positively. Differences between healthy women and
women reporting pelvic joint syndrome, fibromyalgia, whiplash,
or arthritis were significant in bleeding disorders chronic
pelvic pain and inflammatory pelvic disease. Patients with
rheumatoid arthritis reported oophorectomy significantly more
often than healthy women. In conclusion, a high rate of
musculoskeletal symptoms and disorders was reported by
middle-aged women. A strong association between
musculoskeletal disorders and gynecological disease was found.
