Pain makes us human. It is a bell, fine-tuned by evolution, that often rings in moments necessary for our survival.

How do we respond to a signal when it interferes with the other elements that make us human? Pain that lasts longer than six months is considered chronic, and it may not go away. With chronic pain, the bell’s ongoing signal gets your nervous system wound up and increases its reactivity to incoming messages. This can be quite distressing and anxiety-provoking. ...

We hypothesised that CoQ10 supplementation reduced pain better than pregabalin alone via reducing brain activity, mitochondrial oxidative stress, inflammation, and increa...

This study aimed to determine whether comorbid insomnia is associated with increased use of fibromyalgia-related medications and health resources in fibromyalgia (FM) patients. Materials and Methods: We analyzed data retrieved from the Longitudinal Health Insurance Database 2010, which contains claims data of 1 million beneficiaries randomly selected from Taiwan’s National Health Insurance program. Patients treated for FM (n=17,920) on 2 separate visits between 2000 and 2001 were selected and subsequently divided into 2 groups: patients with and without comorbid insomnia (n=5466 and 12,454, respectively). Insomnia...
