Fibromyalgic syndrome [FM]: depression & abnormal illness behavior. Multicenter investigation

  [ 265 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ]
www.ProHealth.com • January 2, 1994


This study reports psychological symptoms assessed in 327
patients with fibromyalgia (FS) in a multicenter
investigation. Two self-report scales, in their validated
Italian translations, were used for screening: the CES-D (the
Center of Epidemiologic Studies-Depression) developed at the
NIMH for measuring depression and the Illness Behavior
Questionnaire (IBQ) developed by Pilowsky and Spence.
The cutoff point of 23 in the CES-D scores revealed about
49% of the fibromyalgic patients as depressed. In analyzing
patterns of illness behavior patients with FS showed a high
score on IBQ scales of disease conviction, psychological
versus somatic focusing and denial. CES-D scores showed
significant correlations with illness behavior scales. These
results and their implications for the treatment of
fibromyalgic patients are discussed.
