Abstract

Objective: Generalized joint hypermobility (GJH) and fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) are two clinical conditions that may cause common musculoskeletal pain during childhood. Our study aimed to evaluate the frequency of juvenile FMS and GJH in children aged 11-18 years in the province Trabzon as well as to evaluate the correlation between these two conditions.
