A pilot study: pain, fatigue and stress in maternal relatives of adolescent female psychiatric inpatients assessed for juvenile primary fibromyalgia syndrome. - International journal of adolescent medicine and health
This study was designed to assess the presence of pain and impaired functioning in the maternal relatives of adolescent females in an inpatient adolescent psychiatric population. We compared the relatives of adolescents who met the criteria for juvenile primary fibromyalgia syndrome (JPFS) to relatives of adolescents who did not meet the criteria for JPFS.A total of 55 biological maternal relatives of adolescent females admitted to a psychiatric unit were recruited to participate in the study. Participants completed four self-administered questionnaires: Multidimensional Fatigue Inventory, Fibromyalgia Impact Questionnaire, Medical Outcomes Survey (SF36v2), and the EPIFUND Health Survey.The maternal relatives of adolescents who met the criteria for JPFS did not score higher than the maternal relatives of adolescents who did not meet the criteria for JPFS. However, all maternal relatives consistently scored higher on self-reported measures of pain, impaired functioning, fatigue, and fibromyalgia symptoms than the average patient diagnosed with fibromyalgia or a chronic pain syndrome.Mood disorders and pain disorders share genetic risk factors and vulnerability. Future research is needed to further delineate other factors impacting the maternal caregivers' functioning. These could include stress associated with an adolescent child with psychiatric issues severe enough to warrant hospitalization.
Juvenile primary fibromyalgia syndrome in an inpatient adolescent psychiatric population. - International journal of adolescent medicine and health
The purpose of this study was to identify the clinical and demographic characteristics of adolescent females admitted to a psychiatric hospital who meet the criteria for Juvenile Primary Fibromyalgia Syndrome (JPFS).Participants (n = 62) were adolescent females, ages 12 to 18 years who were admitted to an inpatient psychiatric unit. The participants completed four questionnaires: The Achenbach Youth Self-Report (YSR), the Children's Somatization Inventory (CSI), the Fibromyalgia Impact Questionnaire modified for children (FIQ-C) and the Pain Symptom Questionnaire (PSQ). Then participants were interviewed to assess the Yunus and Masi JPFS criteria. The interview included an examination of 21 (18 bilateral and 3 control) tender points.Of the 62 adolescent females enrolled, 52% (n = 32) met criteria for JPFS (i.e. JPFS cases). Both the FIQ and CSI scores were significantly elevated for JPFS cases as compared with non-cases (p = .0001 and p = .0012 respectively). Cases of JPFS also scored significantly higher on the anxiety, depression, and conduct disorder scales of the YSR. No between-group differences were found in reports of physical or sexual abuse. However, a consistently higher percentage of JPFS cases reported physical or sexual abuse as a child.Juvenile primary fibromyalgia is highly prevalent in an adolescent inpatient psychiatric unit. This possibility should be taken into consideration when chronic complaints of pain are expressed by patients in this setting, especially in those who have conduct-related issues. The connection between JPFS and abuse history requires further investigation.
