[Psychosomatic relationships in patients with primary fibromyalgia syndrome].


This clinical and psychological study involved 100 patients aged 24-51 years with primary fibromyalgia syndrome (PFS). The patents exhibited clinical manifestations of neurotic disorders, low level of subjective control, dysadaptive attitude toward the disease, and an intense spectrum of protective psychological mechanisms. The main clinical manifestations of PFS correlated with psychological status of the patients. It is concluded that objective evaluation of clinical conditions of PFS patients requires integrated psychosomatic assessment of their health status.
