Results: 92% were women, the prevalence of comorbility was 81%. The dimensions of the FIQ Physical Function presented the most favorable outcome, while poorer scores were in Pain, Fatigue and Feeling good, global HRQoL score was 60,5. Some factors associated with HRQoL were age, income, education, occupation and health system affiliation. According to the regression models the perceived health is the most important factor for HRQOL in fibromyalgia and the variables included in each dimension of FIQ showed coefficients of determination between 14% and 39%.
