Fibromyalgia and Global Pain Syndromes

Date:  Wednesday,  June 15th, 2016

Time:  8pm EST (5pm PST)

Summary:


Research suggests that “classic” Fibromyalgia (FMS) is a central pain processing disorder and does not appear to be a peripheral somatic disorder. Dr. Brady will emphasize the concept that “classic” FMS must be clinically differentiated from the various subsets of organic, functional, and musculoskeletal problems which can lead to an erroneous diagnosis of FMS. He will then discuss an integrated approach to treatment of FMS.

Rather than be viewed as one grandiose syndrome into which all patients with unexplained widespread pain and/or fatigue are lumped, Fibromyalgia (FMS) like symptoms should result in a comprehensive work-up to properly determine the underlying foundational elements of the patients complaints. Dr Brady will outline at least four distinct clinical subsets that exist which often lead to a true or erroneous diagnosis of FMS. All should be considered during the differential diagnosis of patients with widespread pain as the primary symptom. These four subsets are 1) “classic” FMS 2) Medical diseases which mimic FMS 3) Functional/metabolic disorders which mimic FMS and 4) Musculoskeletal disorders which mimic FMS. Specific diagnostic and therapeutic strategies will be presented for each of these subsets.
