    Abstract

    Fibromyalgia is a common pain syndrome treated by physicians of many disciplines and presents with many co-morbidities. The authors reviewed the complexities in assessing disabilities in fibromyalgia patients and the complex interrelationships between patients, their working places, and the medical community regarding preserving productivity. Flexibility is essential to keep the patients functional and productive. Job loss is costly to both society and patients and joint measures are needed to prevent unemployment.
