Objective: To examine the nomenclature, clinical features, pathophysiology, management, outcome and prevention of the "RSI" construct, with particular reference to that of fibromyalgia syndrome. Findings and Conclusion: The condition known as "RSI" is characterized by regional pain and hyperalgesia and other clinical features also seen in generalized fibromyalgia syndrome. The condition is not caused by ongoing tissue damage, is always potentially reversible and like other chronic pain syndromes is influenced by societal and personal factors more than the initial triggering physical and nociceptive factors.
