Heart Problems in Fibromyalgia


Cardiac Failure in Fibromyalgia

A study published by the European Journal of Rheumatology shows that fibromyalgia is more common in people who suffered from chronic cardiac failure (CCF). Furthermore, fibromyalgia was found to have worse outcomes in people who suffered a chronic cardiac failure.

In a study done on 57 people with CCF, 13 of them, which is equivalent to about 23%, met the diagnostic criteria on fibromyalgia. That is substantially higher than the rate of fibromyalgia occurrence in the general population, which is about 3 to 6 percent.

It was also found that those who have fibromyalgia are more likely to suffer from central sensitivity syndromes, including irritable bladder, headache, and temporomandibular joint and muscle disorders.
