Fibromyalgia (FMS) is a common chronic pain condition. FMS pain is classically thought to originate in the brain, due to sensitization of central pain processing. Recent research challenges this, suggesting that sensitisation of peripheral nerves drive the pain. This project will directly record from pain nerves in FMS patients, whilst quantifying their pain sensitivity. It will clarify our mechanistic understanding and will improve treatment of FMS pain.
