PMID: 11961177


OBJECTIVE: To investigate whether physical trauma may precipitate the onset of fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS).

DESIGN: A case-control study was carried out to
compare fibromyalgia out-patients with controls
attending non-rheumatology out-patient clinics.

METHOD: One hundred and thirty-six FMS patients and
152 age- and sex-matched controls completed a postal questionnaire about any physical trauma in the 6 months before the onset of their symptoms.

RESULTS: Fifty-three (39%) FMS patients reported
significant physical trauma in the 6 months before the
onset of their disease, compared with only 36 (24%) of
controls (P<0.007). There was no significant
difference between FMS patients who had a history of
physical trauma and those who did not have physical
trauma with regard to age, sex, disease duration,
employment status and whether their job at onset was
manual.

CONCLUSION: Physical trauma in the preceding 6 months
is significantly associated with the onset of FMS.
