OBJECTIVE. To establish the prevalence of chronic widespread

pain and associated symptoms in a general population sample.

METHODS. Cross sectional postal survey of 2,034 adults in the

north of England.

RESULTS. The point prevalence of chronic

widespread pain was 11.2%. The symptom was strongly associated

with other somatic complaints and with measures of depression

and anxiety.

CONCLUSION. In the general population, this

cardinal symptom of fibromyalgia is common and identifies a

group who are more likely also to report symptoms of fatigue

and depression.
