New Research Suggests Fibromyalgia Patients More Likely to Die Early

People with fibromyalgia may be at greater risk of death from many causes

From the article:
Folks with fibromyalgia are more likely to die early from accidents, infections and by suicide, new research suggests.

“Fibromyalgia is often called an ‘imaginary condition,’ with ongoing debates on the legitimacy and clinical usefulness of this diagnosis,” concluded researchers led by Yulia Treister-Goltzman of Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, in Beer-Sheva, Israel.

“Our review provides further proof that fibromyalgia patients should be taken seriously, with particular focus on screening for suicidal ideation, prevention of accidents, and prevention and treatment of infections,” they wrote.
