Memory functioning in patients with primary fibromyalgia (FM) & major depression & healthy controls

Memory functioning was assessed in 25 primary fibromyalgia
(FM) patients by comparing them with 22 major depressed
patients and 18 healthy controls. A broad range of short- and
long-term memory tasks were included. Both major depressed and
FM patients were significantly impaired on long-term memory
tasks requiring effortful processing, compared to healthy
controls. When the depressive status of the fibromyalgia
patients was accounted for, only the subsample with a lifetime
major depressive disorder showed memory impairment as compared
with the healthy controls.
