Answer

Follow-up care in patients with fibromyalgia is greatly facilitated by the following:

  • Maintaining rapport

  • Encouraging compliance with exercise regimens

  • Paying attention to current psychological and physical stressors

  • Obtaining ongoing self-report questionnaire information that provides semiquantitative data concerning the patient's function, levels of pain and fatigue, and global self-assessment of how the patient is doing
