CHICAGO — Nearly 50% of patients with axial spondyloarthritis are affected by chronic widespread pain, with women reporting higher pain intensity and sensitivity than men, according to data presented at ACR/ARHP 2018 Annual Meeting.
“Pain is a complex symptom and common in all rheumatic diseases,” Elisabeth Mogard, PT, PhD, of the department of clinical sciences and rheumatology at Lund University in Sweden, said during a presentation. “It is an emotional and unique experience for every person.”
