MONTEIRO, Érico Augusto Barreto; OLIVEIRA, Luciene de  e  OLIVEIRA, Walter Lisboa. Psychological aspects of fibromyalgia - integrative review. Mudanças [online]. 2021, vol.29, n.1, pp. 65-76. ISSN 0104-3269.

The objective was to present a descriptive panorama of studies relating psychological aspects to fibromyalgia. An integrative review was conducted from a bibliographic survey in Scielo and Pepsic, considering the period from 2015 to 2019. Ninety-six articles were found and 19 were selected according to the inclusion criteria. Data were organized, tabulated, and submitted to Bibliometric and Content Analysis. The result were 13 field research articles, four bibliographic reviews and two psychometrics studies, and their contents were analyzed in four categories: "coping and stress", "anxiety", "depression" and "other psychological aspects". They highlight difficulties in adapting to the disease, with negative consequences such as social isolation, reduction of physical activities, fatigue, interference in sexual life and sleep, besides stress as a consequence and an aggravating of the symptoms. There was a prevalence of studies about anxiety and depression, with positive correlation of both with pain intensity and other symptoms of fibromyalgia.
