Impact of fibromyalgia (FM) on everyday life: a study of women in the USA & Sweden

  [ 54 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ]
www.ProHealth.com • May 19, 1996


The study investigated how 39 women with fibromyalgia (FM), living
in two countries (USA or Sweden), report the consequences of
fibromyalgia on everyday life activities. Data were collected
using questionnaires, diaries and interviews. The result
showed that the impact on everyday life was considerable. The
majority of the women experienced pain and fatigue for more
than 90% of their time awake. There were no significant
differences between the national groups in time use, problems
with everyday activities, or quality of life. Overall, the
differences between individuals were greater than between the
national groups. The majority of the employed patients in the
Swedish group had reduced their working time, while the
employed patients in the USA group worked mainly full-time.
Patients who were able to reduce their working hours to fit
their perceived capacity were less exhausted during their
leisure, and reported higher satisfaction with daily
activities.
