Asthma Is More Difficult to Control in Patients With Fibromyalgia, Study Shows
Elevated anxiety and depression may be two symptoms that could partially explain why fibromyalgia patients who also have asthma have poorer control of their disease than asthmatics without fibromyalgia, according to a study by the Doctor Peset University Hospital in Spain.
The findings, published in the journal, Current Medical Research and Opinion, suggested that it might be helpful to include interventions such as breathing retraining programs in multidisciplinary treatments for asthma patients with fibromyalgia.
The study, “Fibromyalgia as a cause of uncontrolled asthma: a case-controlled multicenter study,” recruited 56 patients with both fibromyalgia and asthma and 36 asthma patients without fibromyalgia as a control group. All patients were women.
