The diagnostic process of the patient with fibromyalgia from the general practitioner to the rheumatologist: epidemiology and clinical subsets in the real life
Fibromyalgia is a very common diagnosis in the primary care practice, characterized by diffuse muscoloskeletal pain and cognitive and psychiatric symptoms. It may be the exclusive diagnosis or affect patients with other chronic diseases; the role of the rheumatologist may be very useful in perfecting the diagnosis, lowering the cost for unuseful exams and alleviate anxiety of the patients. In this work we present the results of the collaboration between general practitioner and rheumatologist in diagnosing fibromyalgia, based on one month of real life activity.
