This study investigated the relationship between sleep quality and fibromyalgia symptoms in 326 patients. The Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index was used to assess the presence of sleep disorders. Multivariate analysis of variance was performed to determine the influence of fibromyalgia symptoms on sleep quality. The prevalence of sleep disorders was 92.9 percent. Patients reported generalized pain (88.3%), memory failure (78.5%), moodiness (59%), excessive anxiety (77.5%), and concentration difficulties (69.1%). Patients with more symptoms reported poor sleep quality ( p < .05; d = .74), and the total Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index score correlated with the number of symptoms ( p < .01). Sleep quality has an important association with fibromyalgia symptoms.
Background: Fibromyalgia (FM) is characterized by chronic and generalized musculoskeletal pain. There is currently no cure for FM, but palliative treatments are available. One type of treatment is strength training (ST). However, there is a need for more information on optimal training protocols, intensity, and volume needed to improve symptoms. The aim of this study was to analyze the effects of ST in the treatment of FM through a systematic review of experimental research.
Fibromyalgia syndrome (FM) is a musculoskeletal disorder characterized by chronic pain and frequently associated changes in mood states. The aim of this study was to analyze the acute effect of strength training (ST) sessions on the mood states of patients with fibromyalgia. A total of 110 FM patients were eligible for this study. After the inclusion criteria, twenty-eight women with FM (mean age: 51.88±10.22 years) performed three sessions of ST. Each training session worked the main muscle groups and lasted 60 min. Three sets of 12 repetitions were performed with 1-min intervals between them. Outcome measures were assessed at baseline, after one session, and after three ST sessions. The Brunel Mood Scale (BRUMS) was used to assess mood states, and the Wilcoxon test was used to verify differences in mood after one and three ST sessions. The ST practice had positive effects on the patients’ mood states after a single session. Reductions in anger, mental confusion, mood depression, fatigue, and tension were observed. The results of the 3rd ST session were similar. We concluded that a single ST session was sufficient to improve the mood states of patients with fibromyalgia.
Introdução: A síndrome da fibromialgia é caracterizada por dores no corpo, e exercícios físicos, como caminhada e yoga, podem ajudar no tratamento. Objetivos: Investigar o efeito da prática conjunta da caminhada e yoga sobre sono, depressão, impacto da fibromialgia na qualidade de vida, estresse e dor em indivíduos com a síndrome. Métodos: Nove pacientes com média de idade de 53,78 ±5,40 anos realizaram 32 sessões destes exercícios. Utilizou-se o Questionário Sociodemográfico e Clínico, o Índice de Qualidade do Sono de Pittsburgh, o Questionário de Impacto da Fibromialgia, o Inventário de Depressão de Beck e a Escala de Estresse Percebido. Com o “t” de Student pareado, verificaram-se as diferenças das variáveis (p
