Date: 29th September 2021 | By: Dr Lourdes Gaspar
This is an interesting study looking at the psychological response amongst fibromyalgia sufferers compared to the normal population in response to the Covid pandemic.
The study showed “Patients with fibromyalgia (FM) were more affected by psychological stressors, thus negatively affecting sleep quality, symptom severity, and mood, during the COVID-19 pandemic, according to a study published in Advances in Rheumatology”.
We believe more than ever during the ongoing pandemic which is likely to impact on all of us for years to come, a program like www.ACTforPain.com can be helpful to meet the growing need to address the psychological distress caused by the Covid pandemic.
