Answer

Therapeutic recommendations for fibromyalgia can now be based almost entirely on evidence from well-designed randomized controlled trials. Models of pain behavior that interrelate biologic, cognitive, emotional, and behavioral variables form the basis for cognitive-behavioral and operant-behavioral approaches to pain management. Wood published a useful summary of therapeutic approaches to central sensitivity syndrome (CSS) comorbidities in fibromyalgia. [103]
