Study: Are Fibromyalgia patients as inactive as they say they are?
Tuesday 10 March 2009
The results of the study were published in Clinical Rheumatology.
Here’s what the researchers (Graham Raftery et al) said:
“Both fibromyalgia and rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients self-report similar disability.
These diseases are viewed differently by the medical profession - as one has ample evidence of tissue damage and inflammation and the other does not.
We were interested to see if an objective measure produced similar results.”
