    Abstract

    Patients with the fibromyalgia syndrome are physically unfit. Two crucial questions arise. Why do these patients enter a spiral of habitual inactivity? What is the role of deconditioned muscles in causing the symptoms of pain and fatigue? The use of newer techniques, such as nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, allied with studies of exercise physiology, may provide new insights into the fibromyalgia enigma.
