Fibromyalgia (FM) & quality of life: a comparative analysis

The quality of life of women with fibromyalgia was explored

and compared to the quality of life of women with rheumatoid

arthritis, osteoarthritis, permanent ostomies, chronic

obstructive pulmonary disease, insulin dependent diabetes, and

healthy controls. The women with fibromyalgia consistently

scored among the lowest in all domains measured. These results

suggest that fibromyalgia may adversely affect quality of life

to an extent not previously recognized.
