    Abstract
    This study examined whether depression and anxiety differentially relate to fatigue, sleep disturbance, pain catastrophizing, fear of movement, and pain severity in women with fibromyalgia. Baseline data from the Fibromyalgia Activity Study with Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation were analyzed. Of 191 participants, 50 percent reported high anxiety and/or depression (17% high anxiety, 9% high depression, and 24% both). Fatigue and sleep impairment were associated with high depression ( p < 0.05). Pain severity, pain catastrophizing, and fear of movement were associated with high anxiety and high depression ( p < 0.05). Possible implications for underlying mechanisms and the need for targeted treatments are discussed.

    Our NIH $'s hard at work. This makes me all the more concerned about the NIH ME/CFS effort.

    I was saddened to see that - as far as I could tell, at least - all of the study's authors appear to be women.
