Clinical, psychological and quality of life differences in fibromyalgia patients from secondary and tertiary healthcare.


The "funnel effect" of Fibromyalgia (FM) assumes that as patients access healthcare services, they present greater severity and a more complex clinical situation than individuals with FM from the general population, but the studies comparing patients treated in different levels of healthcare are scarce. The aim of this study is to analyse the "funnel effect" hypothesis by comparing patients from secondary and tertiary healthcare services.
