Ms. Aishwarya Agicha

Abstract :

 Fiomyalgia is the second most common diagnosis made in rheumatology clinics, yet its etiology remains a source of controversy The present study is aimed to measure the correlation of stress with fiomyalgia and also the correlation of depression with fiomyalgia. The present study is also aimed to measure the correlation of stress with fiomyalgia syndrome in between young aged and middle aged  adults and then also the correlation of depression with fiomyalgia in between young aged and middle aged adults. Tools used during the assessment were CFS/Fiomyalgia syndrome questionnaire, Beck’s Depression Inventory (BDI),Cohen perceived stress scale (CPSS) and General Assessment Proforma (GAP).The results further proved that impact of FMS on stress is mild to moderate while impact of FMS on depression is moderate to severe in terms of percentage.Although,statistically  no such significance was found among the relation of two variables. The study further goes on proving that correlation of stress with fiomyalgia is more prominent in young aged adults as compared to middle aged adults while correlation of depression with FMS is more prominent in middle aged adults as compared to young aged adults
