Fibromyalgia : a new cause for disability pension.
Fibromyalgia is a condition under dispute.
Accepted by some as a major step forward in understanding some of the patients with widespread muscular pain, looked upon as a confusing side step by others.
In 1988 fibromyalgia was by far the most frequent single diagnosis as a reason for disability pension in Norway.
Disability statistics however show big differences between counties.
Two neighbouring counties had among the lowest and the highest incidence of disability pensioners with the diagnosis fibromyalgia.
New pensioners with fibromyalgia and some closely related diagnosis have been studied during the year 1988 by means of reading the insurance records.
