    This is really interesting study because Fibromyalgia is the type of disorder one would think would helped by mindfulness based stress reduction because it was developed to treat pain disorders. MBSR did help quality of life but it had limited effects on FM measures. An earlier less rigorous study had found better effects.

    Its a little help but it's not really a treatment.

    Not surprisingly it was a European study and it was a big one - 177 patients...It looks like this was their big shot at mind/body interventions for FM...
