Two-thirds of those with fibromyalgia also have depression

New research was carried out by healthizes in order to better understand it’s fibromyalgia community members. The online poll sampled 671 people, all diagnosed with fibromyalgia and the results have provided a valuable insight into the connection between fibromyalgia, depression and anxiety.

The healthizes survey revealed that the majority of fibromyalgia patients are also diagnosed with depression. Figures show that more than 63% of those surveyed stated they had been diagnosed with depression and 58% with anxiety.

The connection between the symptoms is a reciprocal one in that one makes the other worse. One person surveyed commented: ‘I have dealt with doctors, friends and family members that don’t even bother to hide their doubts, and even dismiss my symptoms and daily struggles.’

Of those surveyed, nearly 30% had experienced pain for five or more years before receiving a diagnosis and a surprisingly small 8% received a diagnosis within a year. Raised awareness of fibromyalgia could help to decrease this timeframe.

Those suffering with fibromyalgia and depression and/or anxiety should look to focus their efforts on making sleep a priority as well as getting regular gentle exercise and eating healthily in order to help improve the physical symptoms of fibromyalgia as well as mental health.
