Fibromyalgia Clinical Trials

Do you continually experience pain? The syndrome known as fibromyalgia often causes years of chronic pain and fatigue before the root cause is finally discovered. It’s difficult to diagnose, but if you are living with this condition, you could qualify for a fibromyalgia clinical trial at our clinic in Port Orange, Florida.

Do You Qualify for a Clinical Trial at Accord?

  • Can you comply with a given study schedule and required procedures?
  • Are you willing to provide a signed informed consent form?
  • Are you over the age of 18 years old?

If you’ve answered yes to these questions, then it sounds like you could qualify for one of our fibromyalgia clinical trials at Accord Clinical Research. You should also know that health insurance is not a requirement in order to enroll in a research study.

Compensation for Participating in a Clinical Trial

Unsure whether you’d want to participate in a clinical trial?  You should know that the costs for all study-related care, including administered medication and required screenings, are covered. Participants may also be compensated for their participation. The amount of compensation may vary depending on the type of study.

Symptoms of Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is a difficult syndrome to diagnose primarily because it can produce such a wide range of symptoms. It’s mostly associated with chronic pain, fatigue and specific pressure points, but no two patients ever seem to exhibit the same set of symptoms. There currently isn’t a clinical test that can positively diagnose fibromyalgia. So, it’s important to know the most common signs and symptoms:

  • Severe or chronic fatigue
  • Chronic widespread pain
  • Stiffness in the joints
  • Nerve pain
  • Insomnia and other significant sleep problems
  • Cognitive overload resulting in “fibro fog”

Important: If you have any other questions about our fibromyalgia clinical trials or other research studies at Accord Clinical Research, please call us at (386) 760-7353. Our office hours are from 8 am to 5 pm every weekday.
