Özet

Objective: Alexithymia, a personal trait characterized by difficulty in identifying feelings, is common among chronic pain patients. In our study, we aimed to assess alexithymia in patients with fibromyalgia (FM), to determine its association with clinical parameters and depression, and to analyze its impact on the quality of life.
