Fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome are clinical conditions different but they share common components, particularly multifactorial aetiology. High level of action proneness and "overactive" lifestyle can be considered as predisposing risk factors and perpetuating factors for these somatic functional syndromes. For the clinicians managing complex situations, only a holistic, circular and biopsychosocial approach could restaure a new equilibrium (allostasis) with strategies of coping with chronic pain and planification of activities.
