BACKGROUND Fibromyalgia (FMS) is a syndrome expressed by chronic widespread body pain which leads to reduced physical function and frequent use of health care services. Exercise training is commonly recommended as a treatment. This is an update of a review published in Issue 2, 2002. OBJECTIVES The primary objective of this systematic review was to evaluate the effects of exercise training including cardiorespiratory (aerobic), muscle strengthening, and/or flexibility exercise on global well… 
Effectiveness of physical activity in reducing pain in patients with fibromyalgia: a blinded randomized clinical trial
TLDR
MS was as effective as WA in reducing pain regarding all study variables; however, symptoms management during the follow-up period was more efficient in the WA group.
Recreational exercise in rheumatic diseases.
TLDR
Regular participation in recreational exercise contributes to improved health-related quality of life in patients with rheumatic diseases.
Non-pharmacological treatment of chronic widespread musculoskeletal pain.
Thalassotherapy for fibromyalgia: a randomized controlled trial comparing aquatic exercises in sea water and water pool
TLDR
Evaluating the effectiveness of aerobic exercise in water pool compared with aerobic exercise performed in sea by women with fibromyalgia found that exercise performed sea water (thalassotherapy) is an option for effective treatment with low cost for patients with FM.
FIBROMYALGIA: PRESENT AND FUTURE! WHERE WE STAND
TLDR
Only three drugs, pregabalin, duloxetine, and milnacipran are currently FDAapproved for Fibromyalgia treatment, but many other agents have been tested over the years, with varying results.
Effects of physical exercise on serum levels of serotonin and its metabolite in fi bromyalgia : a randomized pilot study
TLDR
Aerobic training increases the 5HIAA and 5HT levels and it could explain why aerobic exercise can improve symptoms in fi bromyalgia syndrome patient more than stretchingExercise modalities.
EXERCISING THE BRAIN IN PAIN -USING FMRI TO INVESTIGATE INTRINSIC CONNECTIVITY, COGNITION AND PAIN REGULATION IN FIBROMYALGIA AND HOW THIS IS AFFECTED BY PHYSICAL EXERCISE
TLDR
The data suggest that the reduced pain sensitivity following exercise in FM patients was caused by peripheral mechanisms, similar to that of other fibromyalgia patients.
Atividade física no paciente reumático: evidência em fibromialgia

Nas últimas décadas acumulou-se um grande número de evidências científicas sobre a relação entre atividade física, exercícios físicos e fibromialgia (FM). As primeiras pistas de que atividades e
OP0344-HPR Development of responder criteria for multicomponent non-pharmacological treatment in fibromyalgia
TLDR
This work defined sets of responder criteria for multicomponent non-pharmacological treatment in fibromyalgia and found the expert-based responder set comprising the domains illness perceptions and limitations in ADL with patient's gold standard performed best.

Exercise for treating fibromyalgia syndrome.
TLDR
Supervised aerobic exercise training has beneficial effects on physical capacity and FMS symptoms and research on the long-term benefit of exercise for FMS is needed.
Fibromyalgia and Exercise Training: A Systematic Review of Randomized Clinical Trials
TLDR
There is moderate benefit in FMS from supervised aerobic exercise training and details about dosage for muscle strengthening or flexibility training were insufficient to evaluate the adequacy of the training stimulus.

Mind-body therapies for the treatment of fibromyalgia. A systematic review.
TLDR
MBT is more effective for some clinical outcomes compared to waiting list/treatment as usual or placebo, and compared to active treatments, results are largely inconclusive, except for moderate/high intensity exercise, where results favor the latter.
Primary fibromyalgia syndrome: current concepts.
TLDR
PFS patients as a group are more stressed than RA patients and normal controls as measured by Holmes-Rahe Life Events Inventory, and it appears that chronic anxiety-stress causes muscle spasm that can be appreciated clinically in some patients and indirectly by electron microscopic findings of muscle biopsy.
Fibromyalgia versus rheumatoid arthritis: a longitudinal comparison of the quality of life.
TLDR
FM has a negative impact on quality of life, similar to rheumatoid arthritis, except for physical disability.
Primary fibromyalgia syndrome--an outcome study.
TLDR
This study confirms a poor outcome for PFS patients and association with often marked functional disability and high levels of anxiety and depression and no evidence that PFS predates the onset of other disease.
Responsiveness of fibromyalgia clinical trial outcome measures.
TLDR
The FIQ was the most responsive measure to perceived clinical improvement and the inclusion as a primary endpoint in FM clinical trials is recommended.
