Background:The epidemiology of fibromyalgia is poorly defined. The incidence of fibromyalgia has not been determined using a large population base. Previous studies based on prevalence data demonstrated that females are 7 times more likely to have fibromyalgia than males and that the peak age for females is during the childbearing years. Objective:We have calculated the incidence rate of fibromyalgia in a large, stable population and determined the strength of association between fibromyalgia… Expand
The incidence and prevalence of fibromyalgia are higher in multiple sclerosis than the general population: A population-based study.
TLDR
The incidence and prevalence of fibromyalgia are higher in the MS population than the general population and Fibromyalgia should be considered in the management of pain in persons with MS. Expand
Fibromyalgia: prevalence, course, and co-morbidities in hospitalized patients in the United States, 1999-2007.
TLDR
The population-based rate of male FM discharges rose gradually across the lifespan; the rate for women rose sharply but then declined after age 64, and few differences between men and women across demographic and hospitalisation characteristics were evident. Expand
Fibromyalgia Is Associated With Coronary Heart Disease: A Population-Based Cohort Study
TLDR
An association between fibromyalgia and CHD appears to exist, and patients with a diagnosis of Fibromyalgia showed a significantly higher subsequent risk of a CHD event than the patients without fibromy arthritis. Expand
The economic burden of fibromyalgia: comparative analysis with rheumatoid arthritis*
TLDR
The burden of illness in FM is substantial and comparable to RA, and patients with FM+RA incurred direct costs almost double those of the patients with either diagnosis alone. Expand
Mortality in a cohort of Danish patients with fibromyalgia: increased frequency of suicide.
TLDR
The causes of a markedly increased rate of suicide among female patients with FM are at present unknown but may be related to increased rates of lifetime depression, anxiety, and psychiatric disorders. Expand
Clinical and Economic Characteristics of Patients With Fibromyalgia Syndrome
TLDR
The high prevalence of comorbidities among patients with a diagnosis of FMS and the amount paid by the RAMQ was significantly higher for patients with FMS compared with patients without FMS strongly indicate that the economic burden of F MS is substantial. Expand
Comorbidities of self-reported fibromyalgia in United-States adults: A cross-sectional study from The National Epidemiological Survey on Alcohol and Related Conditions (NESARC-III).
BACKGROUND Fibromyalgia has been associated with various physical and mental disorders. However, these comorbidities need to be quantified in a population-based study. METHOD We comparedExpand
Fibromyalgia Syndrome in Chronic Disabling Occupational Musculoskeletal Disorders: Prevalence, Risk Factors, and Posttreatment Outcomes
TLDR
Patients with fibromyalgia were found to show greater psychosocial distress and significantly poorer rates of work return and work retention 1-year postrehabilitation. Expand
Medical conditions in fibromyalgia patients and their relationship to pregabalin efficacy: pooled analysis of Phase III clinical trials
TLDR
Comorbid conditions are common among patients with fibromyalgia and their presence is not associated with altered pregabalin efficacy, and the efficacy analyses performed on these subgroups of patients showed – with few exceptions – consistent pain reductions of similar magnitude with pre gabalin. Expand
A cross-sectional assessment of the prevalence of multiple chronic conditions and medication use in a sample of community-dwelling adults with fibromyalgia in Olmsted County, Minnesota
TLDR
Clinicians who care for patients with fibromyalgia should take into consideration the presence of multiple chronic conditions when recommending medications, as well as the high prevalence of polypharmacy in the sample. Expand

The American College of Rheumatology 1990 Criteria for the Classification of Fibromyalgia. Report of the Multicenter Criteria Committee.
TLDR
Criteria for the classification of fibromyalgia are widespread pain in combination with 2) tenderness at 11 or more of the 18 specific tender point sites, and no exclusions are made for the presence of concomitant radiographic or laboratory abnormalities. Expand
Prevalence and factors associated with fibromyalgia in Mexican patients with systemic lupus erythematosus
TLDR
Fibromyalgia is not common in Mexican patients with SLE and has a different pattern of symptoms in RP and NP patients, adding evidence that ethnicity can play an important role in FM manifestations. Expand
A population study of the incidence of fibromyalgia among women aged 26-55 yr.
TLDR
The calculated annual incidence of FM in females was 583/100,000, which is rather high incidence and most likely explained by the design of the study, also detecting cases usually not seen in hospital settings. Expand
The prevalence and characteristics of fibromyalgia in the general population.
TLDR
Characteristic features of fibromyalgia--pain threshold and symptoms--are similar in community and clinic populations, but overall severity, pain, and functional disability are more severe in the clinic population. Expand
Epidemiology of fibromyalgia
TLDR
A high prevalence of FM was demonstrated among relatives of patients with FM and it may be attributed to genetic and environmental factors. Expand
Fibromyalgia in lupus erythematosus.
TLDR
It is suggested that fibromyalgia and lupus erythematosus are distinct complaints and patients with lupUS are at risk of developing secondary fibromyalgic disease. Expand
[Prevalence and clinical features of fibromyalgia in systemic lupus erythematosus, systemic sclerosis and Sjögren's syndrome].
TLDR
This study suggests that fibromyalgia is relatively frequent in primary Sjögren's syndrome, while in systemic lupus and systemic sclerosis its prevalence is not different from that found in the healthy controls. Expand
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. Expand
Severe rheumatoid arthritis (RA), worse outcomes, comorbid illness, and sociodemographic disadvantage characterize ra patients with fibromyalgia.
TLDR
Fibromyalgia exists in a substantial number of patients with rheumatoid arthritis (17.1%), who have more severe RA by subjective and objective measures, greater medical costs, worse outcomes, more comorbidities, sociodemographic disadvantage, and substantially worse quality of life. Expand
Systematic review of the comorbidity of irritable bowel syndrome with other disorders: what are the causes and implications?
TLDR
Multivariate statistical analyses suggest that gastrointestinal disorders, psychiatric disorders, and nongastrointestinal somatic disorders are distinct disorders and not manifestations of a common somatization disorder, but their strong comorbidity suggests a common feature important to their expression, which is most likely psychological.
