2. Fibromyalgia. (Abstract)

Fibromyalgia. Fibromyalgia is characterized by chronic, widespread musculoskeletal pain and associated fatigue, sleep disturbances, and other cognitive and somatic symptoms. For many patients, these symptoms persist for years and lead to frequent health care use; for some, fibromyalgia and its symptoms can be debilitating. Although many treatments are available, management remains challenging. This article highlights the clinical features of fibromyalgia, discusses diagnostic criteria

Benefits of adding stretching to a moderate-intensity aerobic exercise programme in women with fibromyalgia: a randomized controlled trial To investigate the effects of adding stretching to a moderate-intensity aerobic exercise programme in women with fibromyalgia.Randomized controlled trial.Sixty-four female patients who were diagnosed with fibromyalgia syndrome based on the American College of Rheumatology criteria were recruited (mean age: 54.27 ± 6.94 years).The control group (n = 32 (...) ) underwent supervised moderate-intensity cycling (50%-70% of the age-predicted maximum heart rate) three times per week for 12 weeks. The experimental group (n = 32) underwent the same exercise programme plus a stretching programme once per week for 12 weeks.The main measures of this study were sleep quality assessed by the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index and the Epworth Sleepiness Scale, the impact of fibromyalgia on quality of life assessed by the Fibromyalgia Impact Questionnaire, and pain perception

4. Nintedanib in Progressive Fibrosing Interstitial Lung Diseases. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Nintedanib in Progressive Fibrosing Interstitial Lung Diseases. Preclinical data have suggested that nintedanib, an intracellular inhibitor of tyrosine kinases, inhibits processes involved in the progression of lung fibrosis. Although the efficacy of nintedanib has been shown in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, its efficacy across a broad range of fibrosing lung diseases is unknown.In this double-blind, placebo-controlled, phase 3 trial conducted in 15 countries, we randomly assigned patients (...) with fibrosing lung disease affecting more than 10% of lung volume on high-resolution computed tomography (CT) to receive nintedanib at a dose of 150 mg twice daily or placebo. All the patients met criteria for progression of interstitial lung disease in the past 24 months despite treatment and had a forced vital capacity (FVC) of at least 45% of the predicted value and a diffusing capacity of the lung for carbon monoxide ranging from 30 to less than 80% of the predicted value. Randomization was stratified

Flexibility exercise training for adults with fibromyalgia. Exercise training is commonly recommended for adults with fibromyalgia. We defined flexibility exercise training programs as those involving movements of a joint or a series of joints, through complete range of motion, thus targeting major muscle-tendon units. This review is one of a series of reviews updating the first review published in 2002.To evaluate the benefits and harms of flexibility exercise training in adults (...) trials.We included randomized trials (RCTs) including adults diagnosed with fibromyalgia based on published criteria. Major outcomes were health-related quality of life (HRQoL), pain intensity, stiffness, fatigue, physical function, trial withdrawals, and adverse events.Two review authors independently selected articles for inclusion, extracted data, performed 'Risk of bias' assessments, and assessed the certainty of the body of evidence for major outcomes using the GRADE approach.

8. Is this resistance exercise beneficial to improve function, mobility, quality of life in adult patients with fibromyalgia?

Is this resistance exercise beneficial to improve function, mobility, quality of life in adult patients with fibromyalgia? Getting Evidence into Clinical Practice: Musculoskeletal Research Facilitation Group (CAT Group) Date: November 2017 CAT Lead: Laura Freeman/ Treena Larkin Date CAT completed: November 2017 Email: Treena.larkin@nhs.net Date to be reviewed: November 2021 Specific Question: Is resistance exercise beneficial to improve function, mobility, quality of life in adult patients (...) with fibromyalgia? Clinical bottom line There is low quality evidence to support that moderate and moderate to high intensity resistance exercise can be safely performed and is beneficial for women with fibromyalgia to help with pain, tenderness, strength and multidirectional function. This evidence supports the use of exercise in the treatment of fibromyalgia and can help inform treatment decisions. However clinicians must remain mindful that this review was based on evidence deemed low quality and only

10. Interactive effects of pain catastrophizing and mindfulness on pain intensity in women with fibromyalgia Full Text available with Trip Pro

Interactive effects of pain catastrophizing and mindfulness on pain intensity in women with fibromyalgia The objective of this study was to examine the association between facets of trait mindfulness, pain catastrophizing, and pain severity in a sample of patients with fibromyalgia. Patients with fibromyalgia completed validated baseline and diary assessments of clinical pain, mindfulness, and pain catastrophizing. Multilevel modeling analyses indicated that the daily association between (...) catastrophizing and pain intensity was moderated by certain mindfulness facets. Our findings suggest that various aspects of mindfulness may interact differently with pain and catastrophizing, which may have implications for the design and testing of interventions targeting mindfulness and catastrophizing in fibromyalgia patients.

What causes fibromyalgia? An online survey of patient perspectives Fibromyalgia is a severe chronic pain condition that affects every aspect of life. Causes of the condition remain unclear, and quantitative research cannot account for patients' personal illness narratives and perceptions. This online survey gathered qualitative accounts of the perceived causes of their condition from 596 people with fibromyalgia, which were analyzed thematically. Themes were "Bodily assault, ill-health (...) , and change"; "Emotional trauma and distress"; "Stress and vulnerability"; and "Explaining and authenticating fibromyalgia." Discussion focuses on the complexity of causation, the importance of understanding and having symptoms validated, and the potential for benefiting from patient expertise in building better practitioner-client relationships.

17. Scoping Review of Dance for Adults With Fibromyalgia: What Do We Know About It? Full Text available with Trip Pro

Scoping Review of Dance for Adults With Fibromyalgia: What Do We Know About It? Fibromyalgia is a chronic disorder characterized by widespread muscular tenderness, pain, fatigue, and cognitive difficulties. Nonpharmacological treatment options, such as physical activity, are important for people with fibromyalgia. There are strong recommendations to support engagement in physical activity for symptom management among adults with fibromyalgia. Dance is a mode of physical activity that may allow (...) individuals with fibromyalgia to improve their physical function, health, and well-being. Dance has the potential to promote improved pain processing while simultaneously providing the health and social benefits of engaging in physical activity that contributes to symptom management and overall function rehabilitation. However, we are unaware of current evidence on dance as a nonpharmacological/physical activity intervention for adults with fibromyalgia.The aims of this study were to understand how dance

18. Fascial preadipocytes: another missing piece of the puzzle to understand fibromyalgia? Full Text available with Trip Pro

Fascial preadipocytes: another missing piece of the puzzle to understand fibromyalgia? Fibromyalgia (FM) syndrome is a chronic condition causing pain, affecting approximately 0.5%-6% of the developed countries' population, and on average, 2% of the worldwide population. Despite the large amount of scientific literature available, the FM etiology is still uncertain. The diagnosis is based on the clinical presentation and the severity of the symptomatology. Several studies pointed out (...) pathological alterations within the central nervous system, suggesting that FM could originate from a central sensitization of the pain processing centers. Research supports the thesis of a peripheral neuropathic component, with the finding of axonal damages. The fibromyalgia patient has many myofascial system abnormalities, such as pain and fatigue, impairing the symptomatic profile. This paper revises the myopathic compensations, highlighting the possible role of the fascia in generating symptoms, being
