Özet

Aims: Fatigue, diminished vitality, and increased bodily pain are common symptoms of chronic rhinosinusitis. On the other hand, there is an increased prevalence of rhinosinusitis symptoms among patients with unexplained chronic fatigue and/or bodily pain. Fibromyalgia syndrome is characterized by widespread pain and fatigue. In this Study we aimed to determine the prevalence of fibromyalgia among patients with chronic sinusitis.
