Fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome are often misunderstood conditions responsible for significant disability. It is critical for primary care and pain providers to have a sound understanding of the diagnostic criteria and treatment options for these patients.

Desired Outcomes:

  • Review the epidemiology of fibromyalgia and other syndromes that may overlap.
  • Explain the American College of Rheumatology (ACR) diagnostic criteria for fibromyalgia.
  • Discuss the etiology of chronic fatigue syndrome such as infection, immune dysfunction, endocrine-metabolic dysfunction, depression.
  • Select appropriate pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic treatments for fibromyalgia pain management and chronic fatigue syndrome.
