There are no direct benefits to participating in this study. However, the information we obtain will improve our understanding of fibromyalgia and other chronic pain conditions, which could potentially improve future diagnostic and treatment strategies for these conditions.
Queen's MRI Facility. 15 O'Kill St, Kingston, ON.
Participants will be compensated $20/hour for approximately 3 hours.
Participants will undergo two fMRI sessions scheduled approximately 1 week apart. During these sessions they will be given a noxious heat stimulus to the palm of their right hand. They will be asked to rate the pain associated with these stimuli. Participants with fibromyalgia will also be asked to donate a saliva sample for future genetic testing.
The Queen's MRI facility is open 9am-5pm Monday to Friday. Studies will occur during these times. Please send an email using the contact researcher button below to set up a time.
