ABSTRACT

ObjectivesThis study aimed to review studies in Korean medicine for fibromyalgia syn-drome (FMS).MethodsWe conducted search across 3 electronic databases (Korean traditional knowl-edge portal, RISS, Oasis) to find studies for FMS in Korean medicine. Studies of Korean medicine for FMS were included and analysed. Results15 studies were included. 2 studies were reviews and 13 studies were case reports. Total numbers of patients in case studies were 15. In case studies, acupuncture (100%), herbal medicine (76.9%), Korean physical therapy (69.2%), pharmacopuncture (53.8%), Chuna (46.1%) and moxibustion (30.7%) etc. were used. BL23 in acupuncture and CV12 in moxibustion were most frequently used. Gamisoyo-san in herbal medicine and visual analogue scale (VAS) in outcome measure were most frequently used.ConclusionsThis systematic review found encouraging but limited evidence of Korean medicine for FMS. I expect various trials such as randomized clinical trial or animal ex-perimentation and more case reports. And systemic review for FMS in other national jour-nals is needed.
