Fibromyalgia and neuropathic pain - differences and similarities. A comparison of 3057 patients with diabetic painful neuropathy and fibromyalgia
BMC Neurology, 05/27/2011Koroschetz J et al.
Diabetic neuropathy and fibromyalgia patients experience very similar sensory phenomena. The combination of sensory symptoms – the sensory profile – is in most cases distinct and almost unique for each one of the two entities indicating aetiology–specific mechanisms of symptom generation. Beside the unique aetiology–specific sensory profiles an overlap of sensory profiles can be found in 20–35% of patients of both aetiologies.
