Fibromyalgia syndrome includes symptoms of widespread, chronic
musculoskeletal aching and stiffness and soft tissue tender
points. It is frequently accompanied by fatigue and sleep
disturbance. Fibromyalgia is more common in women than in men,
and it occurs at a mean age of 49 years. Differential
diagnosis includes myofascial pain syndrome and chronic
fatigue syndrome. Fibromyalgia is a multifactorial problem and
no universal treatment guidelines apply to all cases.
Pharmacologic therapy may incude tricyclic antidepressants. In
addition to commonly used pharmacologic therapies, patient
education, reassurance and an exercise program can each play
an important role in relieving the symptoms associated with
this common musculoskeletal syndrome. [References: 34]
