From: Weather sensitivity associated with quality of life in patients with fibromyalgia

  With weather
sensitivity (n = 37)
Without weather

  1. EQ-5D-3L Euro Quality of life-5 Dimensions-3 level, NRS Numerical Rating Scale
  2. These data were analyzed using t test or chi-square test. Data from continuous variables are shown as mean (standard deviation). Data from categorical variables are shown as number (%). The NRS value and EQ-5D-3L scale score were significantly worse in those with weather sensitivity than those without weather sensitivity. * Significance level was set at < 5%
