Title : Prevalence and Diagnosis of Fibromyalgia: A narrative review


Background: Fibromyalgia (FM) is a chronic disorder with persistent manifestation of pain, mood swings, fatigue, depression and attention deficits that affects one’s activity of daily living.

Objective: The present study aimed to find prevalence and diagnosis of Fibromyalgia.

Methodology: A systematic review was conducted to check the prevalence of fibromyalgia   from 2011 to 2020, where records were taken from MEDLINE, PUBMED, and SCOPUS, in total of 3274 records were identified. Studies were selected based on the selection criteria to check the prevalence of fibromyalgia worldwide. The Studies associated with any other disease were excluded. The obtained studies were further divided into five groups based on the key words. “Prevalence of Fibromyalgia”, “Fibromyalgia and Dysmenorrhea”, “Fibromyalgia and Anxiety, Depression, Demography”, “Chronic pain and fibromyalgia”, “Fibromyalgia and Gender” categories. Five studies have revealed the highest incidence of fibromyalgia in women with age group 29-50 years of any demography along with the associated symptoms of anxiety, depression, and behavioural changes. This narrative review has shown a substantial growth in the cases of fibromyalgia in an expanded population.

Conclusion: This study concluded that there is a significant prevalence of symptoms of fibromyalgia among the population of any age and gender but the criteria used by various researchers need further need more extensive review to find out the actual evidence of fibromyalgia in the community worldwide. Further the literature review yet need to set and include some other associated symptoms along with fibromyalgia so that the prevalence of this condition can further be evaluated extensively.

Key Words: Fibromyalgia, Anxiety, Depression, Demography, Chronic pain
