Relationship of Social and Family Support with Acceptance of Pain in Patients with Fibromialgia. Acceptance of chronic pain and relational context have been shown to be important in patients with fibromyalgia. The aim of this study was to know if social and family support are related to the acceptance of pain in these patients. The study involved 55 people with fibromyalgia. To collect the data, a sociodemographic questionnaire was used and the impact of fibromyalgia, pain acceptance, family satisfaction, family cohesion and social support were evaluated. Regression analysis shows how involvement in activities is predicted by family satisfaction and the year of diagnosis. Family cohesion predicts openness to pain, and full acceptance is predicted by family satisfaction, social support and the year of diagnosis. It is concluded that family satisfaction and social support predict the acceptance of chronic pain, regardless of the physical impact of the disease. The need for a family intervention with patients with fibromyalgia in order to enhance their process of acceptance of pain is pointed out. In addition, it is considered necessary to stop the delay in the diagnosis for a better prognosis.
