03 Aug Fibromyalgia and Low Back Pain Metabolomics
The purpose of the study is to investigate the metabolic profiles of people with chronic low back pain and fibromyalgia with people without chronic pain.
We are looking for pain-free controls.
Study participants will fill out a questionnaire about their medical history and demographic information before the sampling visit. At the Center for Pain Relief at UW Medical Center-Roosevelt, we will collect a blood and urine sample in addition to external sensory testing.
The questionnaire and sampling visit should take a total of 45 minutes. Participants will receive a $75 gift card for completing the questionnaire and study visit.
