Fibromyalgia is a chronic complex syndrome of non-articulate origin characterized by musculoskeletal pain, painful tender points, sleep problems and co-morbidities including depression, migraine. The etiopathogenesis of fibromyalgia is complex, variable and remains inconclusive. The etiological factors that have been defined include stress, genetic predisposition and environmental components. As per the reports of the American College of Rheumatology (ACR) the prevalence of fibromyalgia varies… 
Fibromyalgia and Associated Disorders: From Pain to Chronic Suffering, From Subjective Hypersensitivity to Hypersensitivity Syndrome
TLDR
It is possible to define fibromyalgia as a cognitive disorder of cortical integration of chronic pain, with amplification of painful and sensory nociception, decrease in the threshold for the perception of pain, and persistence of a stimulus that maintains the process in chronicity.
The Role of Nutrient Supplementation in the Management of Chronic Pain in Fibromyalgia: A Narrative Review
TLDR
Preliminary results are promising, however, much of the existing evidence regarding diet supplementation is of poor quality, and more robust studies are needed to fully elucidate the potential of this alternative therapeutic option.
Clustering fibromyalgia patients: A combination of psychosocial and somatic factors leads to resilient coping in a subgroup of fibromyalgia patients
TLDR
The data suggest that problem- and emotion-focused coping strategies and an anti-inflammatory cytokine pattern are associated with reduced disability and might promote resilience.
Impact of Fibromyalgia on Female Infertility
TLDR
Fibromyalgia is a chronic, widespread musculoskeletal pain and polyalgic syndrome, evolving for more than three months, that is related to different situations that can induce infertility in women.
Fibromyalgia in patients with migraine: A literature review in the last 20 years
TLDR
The association of fibromyalgia in patients with migraine is frequent, increasing the disability of these two diseases and generating great social impact, knowledge of this association and the management of its consequences are necessary in medical practice.
Daphnetin, a natural coumarin averts reserpine-induced fibromyalgia in mice: modulation of MAO-A.
TLDR
The current investigation results delineate that daphnetin might exert its protective effect by inhibiting inflammatory stress and MAO-A-mediated neurotransmitter depletion and oxidative stress.
Changes in inflammatory plasma proteins from patients with chronic pain associated with treatment in an interdisciplinary multimodal rehabilitation program – an explorative multivariate pilot study
TLDR
There is a need for larger and more strictly controlled studies of IMMRP with respect to inflammatory markers in blood, as this explorative pilot study found that 12 substances, mainly pro-inflammatory, decreased after IMMRp.
Involvement of Oxidative Stress and Nerve Growth Factor in Behavioral and Biochemical Deficits of Experimentally Induced Musculoskeletal Pain in Mice: Ameliorative Effects of Heraclin
TLDR
It may be suggested that heraclin exerts beneficial effects against reserpine-induced musculoskeletal pain disorder possibly through the attenuation of NGFR-mediated pain and inflammatory signaling.
Motor cortex inhibition as a fibromyalgia biomarker: a meta-analysis of transcranial magnetic stimulation studies
TLDR
Evidence on corticospinal and intracortical motor excitability in fibromyalgia subjects and the prognostic role of TMS metrics as response biomarkers in FM are evaluated.

Fibromyalgia: presentation and management with a focus on pharmacological treatment.
TLDR
Effective management of fibromyalgia is complex and requires a multidisciplinary treatment approach, and response and tolerance of different therapeutic interventions vary from patient to patient.
High prevalence of growth hormone deficiency in severe fibromyalgia syndromes.
TLDR
FM patients show a high prevalence of GH axis dysfunction, and a significant number of patients show biochemical patterns of GH deficiency as well as some degree of GH resistance and might be potential candidates for substitution treatment.
Fibromyalgia: from pathophysiology to therapy
TLDR
The roles of biological and psychological stress, genetic factors, and pain and sensory processing in the pathophysiology of fibromyalgia and related conditions are discussed and pharmacological treatments, as well as nonpharmacological treatment options are considered.
Cytokines play an aetiopathogenetic role in fibromyalgia: a hypothesis and pilot study.
TLDR
In patients with FM, increases over time in serum levels and/or PBMC-stimulated activity of soluble factors whose release is stimulated by substance P are found, hypothesized that they may play a role in modulating FM symptoms.
Fibromyalgia syndrome in patients with hepatitis C infection
TLDR
The results demonstrate a tendency toward higher prevalence of fibromyalgia in patients with hepatitis C virus infection, and detailed examination of the patients helps to differentiate FS from other musculoskeletal complications of HCV infection.
Increased levels of neurotrophins are not specific for chronic migraine: evidence from primary fibromyalgia syndrome.
Monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs) for fibromyalgia syndrome.
TLDR
Data suggest that the effectiveness of MAOIs for the treatment of FM symptoms is limited, and a moderate effect size on pain and a small one on tender points is observed.
Fibromyalgia and neuropathic pain - differences and similarities. A comparison of 3057 patients with diabetic painful neuropathy and fibromyalgia
TLDR
The combination of sensory symptoms - the sensory profile - is in most cases distinct and almost unique for each one of the two entities indicating aetiology-specific mechanisms of symptom generation.
Fibromyalgia in patients with irritable bowel syndrome
TLDR
The presence of FM in IBS patients seems to be associated only with the severity of IBS, which confirms previous studies on the association between the two syndromes.
