Fibromyalgia is characterised by chronic pain, fatigue and functional symptoms. Its aetiopathogenesis is still a matter of debate, but various pharmacological and non-pharmacological therapies are currently available for its treatment. We review the literature concerning the most recent findings related to the aetiopathogenesis, diagnosis, clinical aspects and treatment of FM published between January 2018 and January 2019.
