Evaluation of the Incidence of Fibromyalgia Syndrome and Its Effect on Quality of Life in Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic, autoimmune, systemic inflammatory disease with a prevalence of approximately 1%. With a lifetime development rate of 3.6%, rheumatoid arthritis is seen 1.7% more in women than in men. Although there are no diagnostic criteria for rheumatoid arthritis, ACR / EULAR 2010 classification criteria are frequently used in diagnosis. Symptom duration, number of swollen joints, acute phase reactants and serology are used in these criteria. Fibromyalgia syndrome is characterized by chronic widespread pain, fatigue, exercise disorders and cognitive impairment. Although the prevalence of fibromyalgia syndrome in the general population is between 2-4%, it is one of the most common conditions encountered by rheumatologists. A treat to target strategy is recommended in rheumatoid arthritis disease management. This approach suggests close monitoring of disease activity and treatment change in cases where the goal is not achieved. The prevalence of fibromyalgia in rheumatoid arthritis patients was found to be 5-52% in meta-analyzes due to the heterogeneity of fibromyalgia criteria used in studies. This study, it was aimed to evaluate the effect of secondary fibromyalgia syndrome, which is frequently found in rheumatoid arthritis and characterized by symptoms such as fatigue and widespread pain, on rheumatoid arthritis disease activation and patients' quality of life.
