Despite substantial interest and investigation during the past 10 years, fibromyalgia continues to provoke many controversies.
The major issues discussed in this review include the diagnostic utility of fibromyalgia, psychiatric and central nervous system factors, therapy and outcome, and compensation and disability.

Such factors may be among the most important in long-term treatment.
