Abstract

Fibromyalgia (fibrositis) syndrome (FS) is a common and chronically painful form of non articular rheumatism. A high count of tender points is characteristic, but there are no confirmatory laboratory tests--the diagnosis is clinical. The cause is unknown, although a number of recognised factors are important in the expression of the condition.
