    Abstract

    The quality of life of women with fibromyalgia was explored and compared to the quality of life of women with rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, permanent ostomies, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, insulin dependent diabetes, and healthy controls. The women with fibromyalgia consistently scored among the lowest in all domains measured. These results suggest that fibromyalgia may adversely affect quality of life to an extent not previously recognized.
