Objective: Fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) is a disorder that causes chronic extensive musculoskeletal pain. Although there has been great debate in recent investigations regarding the risk factors of FMS, no agreement has been reached about the pathophysiology of the syndrome. In recent studies, it has been suggested that there is an abnormal response to stress factors in this syndrome due to the neuro-endocrine system perturbation as a result of stress experiences such as abuse during childhood, adolescence or adulthood. In this context, this study aims to evaluate the differences of all types of partner violence experienced by patients with FMS and healthy controls.
