The last months have seen an interesting array of fibromyalgia (FMS) related papers. A study from Sweden compared the tender point paradigm using 60 points with the conventional American College of Rheumatology (ACR) 18 points in a group of women doing home care work. Reassuringly, the ACR 18 tender points correlated with the expanded set of 60 tender points both in those diagnosed as having FMS and those with uncomplicated myofascial pain. A study from the UK provided further evidence for a link between the onset of FMS and trauma. An interesting study in Norway attempted to dissect out the organic components versus the psychological components of pain variance in FMS. As regards treatment studies, there was an emphasis on the benefits of strength training. There were only a few pharmacological studies, the most notable one being a report on the benefit of using fluoxetine as a unimodal treatment.
