Abstract

Fibromyalgia is a rheumatic syndrome that affects many women in the Brazilian population. There is the current hypothesis that the social labor regime has contributed to increased rates of fibromyalgia, resulting in illness and collective suffering. The unease generated is somatized as chronic pain, anxiety and depression, symptoms typical of fibromyalgia. This paper is a product of ethnographic research with more than 60 women diagnosed with fibromyalgia. The loss of positive directions in relation to work and disenchantment with work activity involves pain and suffering. Fibromyalgia has become, along with RSI and WRMD cases, an effect of the restructuring of capital-labor ratio in recent decades.
