Fibromyalgia is a multifaceted disease. [] Key Method A literature search was conducted through PubMed/MEDLINE and Web of Science databases using relevant keywords. Recent evidence on this highly studied topic indicates that fibromyalgia has an immunological background. Cytokines/chemokines, lipid mediators, oxidative stress and several plasma-derived factors underlie the inflammatory state in fibromyalgia. There are potential new therapeutic options targeting inflammatory pathways in fibromyalgia patients…
Fibromyalgia interferes with disease activity and biological therapy response in inflammatory rheumatic diseases
TLDR
Comorbid fibromyalgia interferes not only with the disease activity scores but also with the treatment outcomes and management plan, so further evidence is warranted in order to determine the potential benefits of biological disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs on Fibromyalgia-related symptoms in patients with inflammatory rheumatic diseases.
Specialized, pro-resolving mediators as potential therapeutic agents for alleviating fibromyalgia symptomatology.
TLDR
It is hypothesized that the inflammatome, the entire set of molecules involved in inflammation, acting as a common pathophysiological instrument of gut dysbiosis, sarcopenia, and neuroinflammation, is one of the major mechanisms underlying FM pathogenesis.
Fibromyalgia: Pathogenesis, Mechanisms, Diagnosis and Treatment Options Update
TLDR
Fibromyalgia is a syndrome characterized by chronic and widespread musculoskeletal pain, often accompanied by other symptoms, such as fatigue, intestinal disorders and alterations in sleep and mood, and several diagnostic approaches have been developed in recent years, including the analysis of genetic, epigenetic and serological biomarkers.
PATHOGENESIS OF FIBROMYALGIA IN PATIENTS WITH AUTOIMMUNE DISEASES: SCOPING REVIEW FOR HYPOTHESIS GENERATION
TLDR
Fibromyalgia is the common phenotype arising from the amalgamation of various aetiologies, and recruitment or amplification of the above 6 factors by various rheumatic diseases may thus lead precipitation of secondary FM in susceptible individuals.
Pathogenic Role of iNOs+ M1 Effector Macrophages in Fibromyalgia
TLDR
The impact of macrophage plasticity in various immunopathological aspects of fibromyalgia is highlighted as it strongly suggest that macrophages are critical in both inflammatory and neuropathic pain.
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.
Diagnostic Challenges and Management of Fibromyalgia
TLDR
The causes, diagnosis, and current treatment protocols of FM are examined, as well as some continuing debates and diagnostic challenges which physicians face in accurately diagnosing fibromyalgia are discussed.
The effectiveness and safety of electrotherapy in the management of fibromyalgia
TLDR
The present article aimed to review the recent literature on the effectiveness and safety of the electrotherapy in the treatment of fibromyalgia, and found Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation, non-invasive brain stimulation, and light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation (LASER) emerged as the most commonly examined Electrotherapy techniques in fibromy arthritis.

Hydroxytyrosol as a Promising Ally in the Treatment of Fibromyalgia
TLDR
Fibroblast from FM show a differential expression in proteins involved in the turnover of extracellular matrix and oxidative metabolism that could explain the inflammatory status of patients, and support that an HT-enriched diet could be highly beneficial in the management of FM.

Autoinflammation and Immunomodulation in Inflammatory Fibromyalgia Syndrome- A Review.
TLDR
The inflammatory markers and abnormal levels of other laboratory indicators that can help to identify the subgroup of patients that fall into the new category of Inflammatory Fibromyalgia are reviewed.
Neurogenic inflammation in fibromyalgia
TLDR
Emotional and stress-related physiological mechanisms are seen as upstream drivers of neurogenic inflammation in fibromyalgia, and may influence central symptoms, such as fatigue and changes in cognition.
Could Endocan, a Marker of Inflammation and Endothelial Dysfunction, be a New Diagnostic Marker for Fibromyalgia?
TLDR
Subclinical inflammation and endothelial dysfunction are important in the pathophysiology of fibromyalgia and increased endocan not only elucidates this mechanism but also presents as an important potential marker for fibromy arthritis.

Inflammatory/Stress Feedback Dysregulation in Women with Fibromyalgia
TLDR
An inflammatory/stress feedback dysregulation underlies fibromyalgia syndrome, mainly manifested by high circulating levels of IL-8 and CRP, high circulating Levels of cortisol, and increased systemic levels of NA and eHsp72.
Fascial preadipocytes: another missing piece of the puzzle to understand fibromyalgia?
TLDR
The myopathic compensations are revised, highlighting the possible role of the fascia in generating symptoms, and being aware of the new information about the Fascia’s activity in stimulating inflammation and fat cell production.
Unique Cytokine Signature in the Plasma of Patients with Fibromyalgia
TLDR
The TH2 suppression provides strong evidence of immune dysregulation in patients with FMS and may lead to more definitive diagnostic tools for clinicians treating FMS.
Unique immunologic patterns in fibromyalgia
TLDR
The cytokine responses to mitogenic activators of PBMC isolated from patients with FM were significantly lower than those of healthy individuals, implying that cell-mediated immunity is impaired in FM patients.
Effects of 15 consecutive cryotherapy sessions on the clinical output of fibromyalgic patients
TLDR
Fibromyalgic patients treated with cryotherapy reported a more pronounced improvement of the quality of life, in comparison with the non-cryo treated fibromyalgia subjects, as indicated by the scores of the qualitative indexes and sub-indexes, that are widely recognized tools to assess the overall health status and the effect of the treatments.
