By N. Akkaya, et al.

Abstract:

The aim of this study is to investigate the relationship of postural stability and sleep disorders in patients with fibromyalgia syndrome.

Frequency of falls in the last 6 months in 48 fibromyalgia and 32 control subjects were recorded.

Postural stability was assessed by static posturography device (Tetrax, Sunlight Medical Ltd., Israel).

Functional assessment consisted of lower-body strength; one-leg stance test were applied to all subjects.

Fibromyalgia impact questionnaire (FIQ), sleep quality numeric rating scale (NRS), and Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index were inquired.

  • The number of falls in the last 6 months was significantly higher in the fibromyalgia group.

  • Mean total value of stability indexes was 201.7±70.9 vs. 162.6±29.6 in fibromyalgia and control subjects (p<0.05)

  • NRS and Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index were significantly higher in fibromyalgia patients.

  • It was detected that there were significant relationships between fall risk and NRS scores (r=0.565), and FIQ fatigue subscores (r=0.560) (both p<0.05)

Worse postural performance and fall risk found in the fibromyalgia patients compared to controls were related with the sleep quality in the last 24 h and level of fatigue.
