Clinical correlates of sleep problems in systemic sclerosis (SSc): the prominent role of pain. Sleep disruption scores were as high in SSc as in rheumatoid arthritis and higher than in the general population. Pain was robustly associated with sleep disruption. Additional research is needed on sleep in SSc so that well-informed sleep interventions can be developed and tested. Katherine Milette, Rheumatology, December 17, 2010. (Also see: Sleep and Pain)
