Fibromyalgia is a complex chronic pain condition which causes widespread muscle pain and tenderness throughout the body. Fibromyalgia is a pain disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues. Fibromyalgia symptoms often wax and wane over time and can vary in intensity. Researchers believe that fibromyalgia amplifies painful sensations by affecting the way your brain processes pain signals.
Approximately five million adults suffer from fibromyalgia, and women are more likely to develop fibromyalgia than men. Roughly 80-90% of sufferers are women. Although there is no current cure researchers are getting closer to understanding the complex pain condition thereby minimizing the stigma previously surrounding this disorder.
We at Artemis Institute for Clinical Research conduct clinical trials for investigative medications for the treatment of fibromyalgia. Qualified research participants will receive financial compensation for their time and travel, study-related medical and psychological evaluations, and the investigative study medication at no cost. Help advance medicine and medical research through participating in our clinical trial!
