We analyzed the differences in perceived pain, as measured by FIQ
and SF36 questionnaires and tenderness (algometer score and tender points count) across the three categories of HADS-anxiety and HADS-depression status proposed by Snaith & Zigmond (1994).
All participants underwent a pre- and postintervention assessment that included pain measurements, physical function tests (e.g., 6-minute walk test, chair sit and reach, back scratch, handgrip strength), body fat composition, and several psychological assessments including the Fibromyalgia Impact Questionnaire (FIQ
), Vanderbilt Pain Management Inventory, Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale, General Self-Efficacy Scale, and Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale.
Pain variables, including FIQ
, and education did not correlate with postural control.
Results: The patients with FMS had lower VAS and FIQ
scores at the end of the exercise period.
All other analyses, based on VAS, FIQ
, STAI, W-DEQ, and BDI, were evaluated by another examiner who was blinded to the patients and controls.
At 12 months there was a further reduction in mean CDLQI to 5 and in mean FIQ
Women on duloxetine scored significantly better compared with those taking placebo on both on the Fibromyalgia Impact Questionnaire (FIQ
) total score and on the FIQ
Arnold noted that in a related and similarly designed study involving 60 patients, she and her colleagues found that fluoxetine was significantly better than placebo in improving total FIQ
scores and several other pain measures.
