Research has shown that weight problems are very common in fibromyalgia. Research also
suggests that overweight and obesity may contribute to worsening of fibromyalgia symptoms and
biochemical vulnerability associated with fibromyalgia. Effective weight management may be
important in not only improving general health but also better management of fibromyalgia
symptoms. Research has indicated that nutrition and coping education is important aspects of
successful weight management. In this study, the investigators are evaluating the effect of
nutrition and coping education on weight and symptom management of fibromyalgia among
overweight and obese patients.
