Fibromyalgia syndrome: The relationship between alexithymia and attachment style on couple relationship

This study will evaluate the quality of committed relationship in couples where at least one of the partners is diagnosed with fibromyalgia. We will look into how alexithymia (a condition that affects our ability to recognize and describe emotions) and attachment style (how people behave in intimate relationships) influence couple satisfaction when fibromyalgia symptoms are present in the daily life events. Participants in this study have a diagnosis of fibromyalgia and are in a long-term intimate relationship.
