LOPEZ ESPINO, Manuel; GOZALO PALOMARES, Adolfo; MINGOTE ADAN, José Carlos  and  BOROBIA FERNANDEZ, César. Biochemical markers and isometric tests in fibromyalgia. Med. segur. trab. [online]. 2008, vol.54, n.213, pp.47-66. ISSN 1989-7790.

Fibromyalgia is a well defined clinic entity which systemic symptoms and signs are chronic and fluctuating, in which we can see the interaction of different s etiopathogenic mechanisms, and associated psychosocial factors as well. There are not completely known the implicated etiopatogenic mechanisms. The diagnostic process is clinic and it usually takes too much time to diagnose and to treat people affected. In spite of numerous studies, but actually it does not exist any specific test for a precise differential diagnostic. In this study we adapt two evaluation instruments, which are biological markers and muscular, in order to confirm the SFM as psychosomatic illness, and not as somatoforme disorder. Our study was planned as a prospective analysis of 26 female patients affected by fibromyalgia and a random sample that accepted being studied, in order to measure the biological profile of stress and isometric and dynamic performances (Isostation B- 200) in fibromyalgic patiens and control group.

Keywords : Fibromyalgia; biological markes of diagnostic; isometric and dynamic performances.
