Fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS), which is characterized by generalized bodily pain and sensitivity at specific tender points, chronic widespread pain and fatigue, is considered as a psychosomatic disorder. In recent years, the biopsychosocial model provided a comprehensive approach for FMS by considering the features of psychological and social variables as well as the biological ones. Among the psychiatric comorbidities, FMS patients present high lifetime and current diagnosis of depression. The high occurrence of depression in fibromyalgia took into account two considerations - shared pathophysiologic mechanisms and precipitating factors. Several research showed that cogntive and behavioral therapy and operant conditioning treatment are efficient interventions for pain perception and pain management of these patients.
