Fibromyalgia patients who experience cognitive problems (AKA “fibrofog”) are invited to take part in an international e-mail-based doctoral research survey based at the University of West England.
Online completion of answers to study questions is expected to require about 15 minutes, and participants will remain anonymous.
The resulting findings should help to develop a more evidence-based understanding of the level of FM patients’ cognitive problems, considering other details of their health status, and how they cope with cognitive changes.
Requirements to participate include:
• Diagnosis of fibromyalgia
• Cognitive problems
• 18 years of age or older
• Computer access
• Ability to log into a website, create a password and retain it for re-entry, and complete answers to an online questionnaire and questions.
• No head injury, CFS or ME, current or past cerebral disease.
If you are interested in taking part in this study and would like to see the study website, or want more details before deciding – go to the Fibromyalgia Association UK website (http://www.fibromyalgia-associationuk.org), where the study announcement is posted, and click on a link to e-mail the researcher – Pascale Harrison. In turn she will forward a link to the study website.
Note: Another online survey announcement on the FibromyalgiaAssociationUK.org website – this one limited to female FM patients in the south east of England to ensure manageable size - will develop data on the effects of certain foods or food groups among FM patients.
