The purpose of this study was to describe the health practices of women with fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) and the predictors of an overall health promoting lifestyle in these individuals. The predictors of a health promoting lifestyle examined in this study were barriers, social support, self-efficacy, demographic characteristics and illness factors. The sample consisted of 198 women who participated in a randomised clinical trial to test the effectiveness of a health promotion intervention for women with FMS. The women in this sample engaged most frequently in health practices in the domains of interpersonal relations and spiritual growth and least frequently in the domain of physical activity. Self-efficacy and social support were significant predictors of an overall health promoting lifestyle.
