Objective To develop feasible indices as clues to comorbid fibromyalgia (FM) in routine care of patients with various rheumatic diseases based only on self-report multidimensional health assessment questionnaire (MDHAQ) scores, which are informative in all rheumatic diagnoses studied. Methods All patients with all diagnoses complete an MDHAQ at each visit; the 2011 FM Criteria questionnaire was added to the standard MDHAQ between February 2013 and August 2016. The proportion of patients who met ...

Uveitis may represent an opportunity to diagnose spondyloarthropathies (SpA) earlier and influence treatment decisions. We describe the percentage of acute anterior uveitis (AAU) in a diverse group of SpA patients seen at one academic setting and compare demographic and clinical characteristics according to the presence of uveitis. We conducted a retrospective study of patients with SpA and AAU (January 2016–June 2017). Patients were identified using ICD-10 and administrative claim codes, diagno...

Background: A multidimensional health assessment questionnaire (MDHAQ) includes scales for a self-report painful joint count, symptom checklist, and fatigue visual analog scale (VAS), which may be compiled into a fibromyalgia assessment screening tool (FAST3-F), in addition to physical function, pain VAS, and patient global VAS, compiled into routine assessment of patient index data (RAPID3). FAST3-F agrees >80% with 2011 formal fibromyalgia (FM) criteria in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients wh...

Background Fibromyalgia (FM) generally is easily recognized, but a diagnosis may be difficult, particularly in patients with secondary FM who have other primary diagnoses. Criteria for FM initially were reported in 2000, and revised in 2011 and 2016, based entirely on a patient self-report questionnaire. However, FM criteria are not collected in most routine clinical care, as it is not feasible to use multiple patient questionnaires in busy clinical settings. MDHAQ/RAPID3 (multi-dimensional heal...
