    Article - En anglais

    Epidemiologic studies of fibromyalgia have so far been based on rheumatologic and general practice settings, which are poor proxies for the underlying population, The study is based on a national health interview survey carried out by the Danish Institute for Clinical Epidemiology in 1990/91 on approx. 6000 randomly selected Danish citizens.

    For this study 1219 subjects from the eastern part of Denmark aged 18 to 79 years were asked about widespread muscle pain.

    One-hundred-and-twenty-three persons fulfilled the screening criteria.

    Clinical examination could be performed on 65 persons (53%). Eight subjects, all female, met the 1990 American College of Rheumatism criteria for fibromyalgia.

    Dropouts were regarded as not having fibromyalgia.
