  1. Note: Pain was assessed with a 100 mm visual analogue scale, Number of symptoms with a standardised symptom checklist, General functioning with some of the SF-36 subscales, the Fibromyalgia impact with the FIQ, and Anxiety and Depression with the HADS.
  2. In these analyses, the two Acceptance of pain scores were tested for entry (p < .05) and removal (p > 0.10) criteria. The eight Coping scale scores were tested for entry or removal on subsequent steps based on the same statistical criteria.
