Abstract

The aim of this study was to investigate the prospective association between insomnia and risk of chronic musculoskeletal complaints (CMSC) and chronic widespread musculoskeletal complaints (CWMSC). A second aim was to evaluate the association between insomnia and number of body regions with CMSC at follow-up. We used data from the second (HUNT2, 1995-1997) and third (HUNT3, 2006-2008) wave of the Nord-Trøndelag Health Study (the HUNT Study). The population-at-risk included 13,429 people aged 20-70 years who reported no CMSC at baseline in HUNT2 and who answered the questionnaires on insomnia in HUNT2 and CMSC in HUNT3. Insomnia was defined according to the 4th edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV) with minor modification, whereas CMSC was assessed for nine different body regions. CWMSC was defined according to the 1990 criteria by the American College of Rheumatology. We used Poisson regression to estimate adjusted risk ratios (RRs) for CMSC and CWMSC at 11 years follow-up. Precision of the estimates was assessed by a 95% confidence interval (CIs). Insomnia at baseline was associated with increased risk of any CMSC (RR 1.16, 95% CI 1.03-1.32) and CWMSC (RR 1.58, 95% CI 1.26-1.98) at follow-up. RR for CMSC for specific body regions ranged from 1.34 (95% CI 1.05-1.73) for the knees and 1.34 (1.10-1.63) for the neck to 1.60 (95% CI 1.19-2.14) for the ankles/ft. Further, insomnia was associated with increased risk of CMSC in 3-4 regions (RR 1.36, 95% CI 1.05-1.77), and 5 or more regions (RR 1.93, 95% CI 1.40-2.66), but not 1-2 regions (RR 0.99, 95% CI 0.80-1.24). Insomnia is associated with increased risk of CMSC, CWMSC, and CMSC located in 3 or more body regions.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 26. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 12 June 2018.
All research outputs
#651,825
of 13,793,900 outputs
Outputs from BMC Musculoskeletal Disorders
#113
of 2,735 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#24,489
of 272,818 outputs
Outputs of similar age from BMC Musculoskeletal Disorders
#1
of 1 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 13,793,900 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 95th percentile: it's in the top 5% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 2,735 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 6.1. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 95% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 272,818 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 91% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 1 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
