Fibromyalgia is a complex chronic illness affecting 6-12 million Americans. Self-management strategies play a key role in reducing symptoms and maintaining functioning. The proposed project offers a web-based self management tool that enables FM sufferers to identify significant linkages between their personal symptom levels and their personal self-management efforts over time in order to plan their own optimal approach to disease management.
Research has shown that weight problems are very common in fibromyalgia. Research also suggests that overweight and obesity may contribute to worsening of fibromyalgia symptoms and biochemical vulnerability associated with fibromyalgia. Effective weight management may be important in not only improving general health but also better management of fibromyalgia symptoms. Research has indicated that nutrition and coping education is important aspects of successful weight managemen...
Fibromyalgia is characterized by widespread pain that can lead to significant patient dysfunction and economic burden to society. The management of patients with fibromyalgia is difficult and no single treatment modality has been successful. We propose to study the effect of dietary soy supplement on quality of life associated with fibromyalgia.
Fibromyalgia is a common, costly and debilitating illness which affects mostly women. Fibromyalgia patients report widespread musculoskeletal pain, fatigue, stiffness, and distress. Several consensus statements indicate that optimal care combines medication, exercise, and psychology. Yoga is a popular mind/body discipline which holds promise for reducing fibromyalgia symptoms. The aim of this pilot study is to evaluate the effects of an innovative program, Yoga of Awareness, in...

The overall objective of this work is to improve treatment outcomes for persons with fibromyalgia by optimizing the approach to self-management. The purpose of this research project is to evaluate and compare, in a randomized, controlled trial involving 200 women, the short and long-term effectiveness of four approaches to fibromyalgia self-management for improving health and functional status, self-efficacy, and symptom severity. Additionally, we will also examine the effect o...
Investigators are seeking to determine the effects of CBT, anodal tDCS over left DLPFC, and combined CBT+ tDCS on clinical pain and functioning among a sample of patients with fibromyalgia. This study will be the first randomized, double-blind, controlled study of tDCS technology as an adjunctive pain management strategy for fibromyalgia pain. Data from this trial will likely yield information regarding the feasibility and efficacy of tDCS+CBT as a chronic pain-management appro...
In this study the investigators hypothesize that the presence of a dog will provide additional benefits above typical therapy for patients suffering from fibromyalgia.
Therapy for fibromyalgia is a well discussed topic in literature, yet not thoroughly evidence-based. Several unicomponent therapies seem to be benificial. Whereas multicomponent and multidisciplinary therapy gains importance and revealing promising results, the investigators aim to combine two well-known therapies in a program for patients with fibromyalgia. From clinical experience, a high drop-out rate has been stated. All data will be explored to analyse explanatory f...
The purpose of this study is to assess whether quetiapine (Seroquel XR) is an effective treatment for the management of fibromyalgia.
This study evaluates whether Fibromyalgia Integrative Training program for Teens (FIT Teens), a combined cognitive behavioral therapy and neuromuscular exercise training program is more effective in reducing disability in adolescents with Juvenile Fibromyalgia compared to cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) alone or a graded aerobic exercise (GAE) program alone. One third of participants will receive the FIT Teens training; one third will receive CBT training; and one third of p...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and tolerability of pregabalin compared with placebo for management of fibromyalgia in adults.
Fibromyalgia affects 1.4 now 2.2% of the general population whose symptom is the presence of widespread pain in all four quadrants of the body. Currently, there is no causal treatment of fibromyalgia syndrome. The aim of this study is the evaluation of a specific training program on controls of pain in fibromyalgia patients by balancing the stress axis. The primary endpoint is the improvement in the Visual Analogue Scale VAS difference) measured during the test of the t...
Note: This study is still recruiting participants with fibromyalgia and no longer recruiting healthy participants. Pain management techniques may influence how the brain processes pain and may help patients with fibromyalgia (FM), a chronic pain condition. This study will train patients with FM to use pain management techniques. Investigators will use brain scanning (functional magnetic resonance imaging, or fMRI) technology to identify changes in how a patient's brain p...
This study evaluates the effect to a muscle stretching program combined with physical exercise versus a physical exercise program in patients with fibromyalgia.
The purpose of this study is to examine the characteristics of the nerves and the small veins in the skin of people with fibromyalgia. This information will then be used to identify possible processes in the skin that may help explain why some people feel pain relief with the study drug (milnacipran) and others do not. The investigators expect to learn more about the pathophysiology of fibromyalgia and the way in which milnacipran acts on these patients. The investigators hypo...
Objective: Compare degree of improvement can reach patients diagnosed with fibromyalgia syndrome, by treatment with Manipulative and Massage Techniques versus an exercise program for lower thoracic and cervical spine. Study Design: A single-blind randomized controlled trial was conducted on patients with fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS). Setting: Clinical setting. Methods: Sixty-four subjects with FMS were randomly assigned to an experimental group receiving manipulative and...
The Real World Examination of Fibromyalgia: Longitudinal Evaluation of Costs and Treatments (REFLECTIONS) Study is a 12-month, prospective observational study that will be utilized in approximately 58 care settings in the United States (US) and Puerto Rico. It is designed to examine treatment patterns and health outcomes of adult participants diagnosed by their physician with fibromyalgia (FM) and who are starting any "new pharmacologic agent" for FM. The primary benefit of th...
Fibromyalgia (FMS) is a syndrome expressed by chronic widespread body pain which leads to reduced physical function and frequent use of health care services. Exercise training is commonly recommended as a treatment. The purpose of this study is to determine whether a supervised resistance muscular exercise (RME) and walking program (WP) are effective in the treatment of FMS on decrease of pain. The practical of the RME reduces the pain of participants with FMS.
In the current study, we aimed to study: - The proprioception status of patients with FMS. - The effectiveness of a postural exercise program in women with fibromyalgia for 8 weeks (2 sessions per week), compared to a low impact aerobic exercise program on different parameters, such as proprioception, balance, muscle strength, flexibility and joint range.
The purpose of this study was to demonstrate the efficacy and safety of milnacipran at a dosage of 100 mg/day in the treatment of the fibromyalgia syndrome or the pain associate with fibromyalgia.
This study will evaluate the effects of matching treatments to people with fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) on the basis of their psychosocial and behavioral characteristics. We will look at how patients respond to a rehabilitation program that includes physical therapy and information about fibromyalgia. We will combine this program with psychological treatments that are either matched or mismatched to the way patients cope with and adapt to symptoms of FMS. The second aim of our s...
The Fibromyalgia Family Study identifies and collects blood samples from families with two or more members affected with Fibromyalgia Syndrome (FMS). The primary goal of the study is to identify genes that predispose people to FMS and/or symptoms related to FMS; identifying these genes may lead to a better understanding of the disease and more effective treatments.
The purpose of this study is to determine if DVS-233 is safe and effective in the treatment of pain and other symptoms of fibromyalgia syndrome.
