Estimates of the prevalence of arthritis and other rheumatic conditions in the United States. Part II.
TLDR
This report provides the best available prevalence estimates for the US for osteoarthritis, polymyalgia rheumatica, gout, fibromyalgia, and carpal tunnel syndrome as well as the symptoms of neck and back pain.
Patient perspectives on the impact of fibromyalgia.
Topiramate in the treatment of binge eating disorder associated with obesity: a randomized, placebo-controlled trial.
TLDR
Topiramate was efficacious and relatively well tolerated in the short-term treatment of binge eating disorder associated with obesity.
A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, phase III trial of pregabalin in the treatment of patients with fibromyalgia.
TLDR
Pregabalin monotherapy provides clinically meaningful benefit to patients with FM and all pregabalin treatment groups showed statistically significant improvement in assessments of sleep and in patients' impressions of their global improvement.
A double-blind, multicenter trial comparing duloxetine with placebo in the treatment of fibromyalgia patients with or without major depressive disorder.
TLDR
Duloxetine was an effective and safe treatment for many of the symptoms associated with fibromyalgia in subjects with or without major depressive disorder, particularly for women, who had significant improvement across most outcome measures.
Comorbidity of fibromyalgia and psychiatric disorders.
TLDR
There is substantial lifetime psychiatric comorbidity in individuals with fibromyalgia, including the possibility that fibromy arthritis might share underlying pathophysiologic links with some psychiatric disorders.
A 14-week, randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled monotherapy trial of pregabalin in patients with fibromyalgia.
Characteristics of 34 adults with psychogenic excoriation.
TLDR
Psychogenic excoriation is chronic, involves multiple sites, and is associated with a high rate of psychiatric comorbidity, and spans a compulsive-impulsive spectrum.
Family study of fibromyalgia.
TLDR
FM and reduced pressure pain thresholds aggregate in families, and FM coaggregates with major mood disorder in families; these findings have important clinical and theoretical implications, including the possibility that genetic factors are involved in the etiology of FM and in pain sensitivity.
