The researchers also found that a number of risk factors for FM were far more common in patients with COM than without. These included diabetes (P < 0.0001), hypertension (P < 0.0001), sleep disorder (P < 0.0001), depression (P < 0.007), and anxiety (P < 0.0001). The overall incidence of FM (per 1000 person-years) was also notably higher in the COM cohort compared to the control cohort (25.4 vs 18.8, respectively). However, there was a marked connection between younger patients with COM subsequently developing FM: adjusted hazard ratios (aHRs) were the highest for the youngest subgroup of patients (<35 years), at 1.58 (95% CI, 1.03–2.44), which appeared to decrease with older subgroups of patients (>60 years), at 1.03 (95% CI, .78–1.36). Inflammation and severity of the disease was also linked: the aHR of FM reached its largest point in patients that had a severe case of COM rather than a mild one, at 5.29 (95% CI, 3.65–7.66) versus .94 (95% CI, .77–1.15), respectively. Considering the lack of therapies for treating FM, save for symptom-relieving treatments,6 the necessity for screening patients with known risk factors for the disease is now
