OBJECTIVE To ascertain the prevalence of fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and to evaluate its clinical impact and relationship to SLE disease activity. METHODS A cross-sectional analysis of 102 patients from a public hospital SLE clinic. Information was obtained on symptoms of FMS, disability, tender points, pain thresholds, and SLE disease activity. RESULTS Twenty-two SLE patients (22%) met the American College of Rheumatology criteria for FMS, and another… Expand
[The association of fibromyalgia and systemic lupus erythematosus change the presentation and severity of both diseases?].
TLDR
The prevalence of FM observed in SLE patients is 12%, indicating that SLE did not affect the impact caused by FM alone, and a strong impact of FM on the quality of life in patients with SLE was observed. Expand
Fibromyalgia, Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE), and Evaluation of SLE Activity
TLDR
The prevalence of FM in SLE is minimally increased compared with its prevalence in patients with arthritis, and fibromyalgia-ness does not bias the SLESS and should not bias SLE assessments, including the SLAQ. Expand

Objective:To determine the prevalence of fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) among Iraqi patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and its association with disease activity. Patients and methods: ThisExpand
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
Systemic lupus erythematosus in three ethnic groups: XV prevalence and correlates of fibromyalgia
TLDR
FM and FM-like manifestations correlate best with the presence of Caucasian ethnicity, concomitant anxiety or affective disorder, and to a lesser extent with poorer self-reported physical functioning. Expand
Association between fibromyalgia and psychiatric disorders in systemic lupus erythematosus.
TLDR
There is a high prevalence of FM in SLE patients, and a strong association with DS and AS, and its impact on health status in Sle patients. Expand
Prevalence of fibromyalgia syndrome in chronic urticaria
Background: Fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) can coexist with many autoimmune, rheumatic and inflammatory disorders. Chronic urticaria (CU) and FMS are different types of diseases but share many clinicalExpand
Impact of Number of Fibromyalgia Tender Points on Disease Activity in Systemic Lupus Erythematosus Patients
TLDR
SLE patients with higher number of fibromyalgia tender points are significantly associated with increased scores of SLEDAI, and there is a linear correlation between the number of FMTPs and the disease activity in SLE patients. Expand
Lupus patients with fatigue-is there a link with fibromyalgia syndrome?
TLDR
FMS did not correlate with any measure of disease activity although patients with FMS had lower mean DNA antibody titres and mean SLICC/ACR damage scores, and other possible factors leading to fatigue should be considered. Expand
Fibromyalgia in Indian patients with SLE
TLDR
Fibromyalgia appears to be distinctly uncommon in Indian patients with lupus, and a strong family support system, the virtual lack of disability benefits and/or racial variations in pain threshold could be the likely factors responsible for the low prevalence of the disease observed in patients with SLE.

TLDR
It is shown that primary fibromyalgia is a poorly recognized condition and should be suspected by the presence of its own characteristic features, and not diagnosed just by the absence of other recognizable conditions. Expand

TLDR
Lyme disease may trigger fibromyalgia, but antibiotics do not seem to be effective in the treatment of the fibromyalgic symptoms, and only one patient is completely asymptomatic. Expand

TLDR
Evaluation of disease severity markers, including radiographic erosions and frequency of total joint replacement, suggested that disease severity in RAFIB and RA is similar, and pain, depression, anxiety and erythrocyte sedimentation rate were best differentiated. Expand
