    Just got accepted yesterday. It is the second/larger study of a non-drug, no surgery treatment for chronic pain.

    The company is called Omneuron in Menlo Park, CA. This research project uses real-time functional MRI (rtfMRI) to assess brain activation during the experience of pain while participants attempt to mentally control their brain activation and pain response.

    I will be able to see the activity in my own brain on an MRI and try to learn to control it.

    I'm not expecting it to be a cure but am very excited to be able to interact with the research team and help with the research process of developing a potential future treatment for chronic pain.

    Hey, maybe it will even work ! My first appt is 1/12/07 and the study involves 6 weeks of home training, 6 MRI scans (these will begin in early Feb) and 5 weeks of follow up.

    Keep your fingers crossed for me.

    lynnna62:

    Sounds good!

    I am in a trial study of a home program being tested on people with fibromyalgia. It will last four months.
    So far, so good.

    You can also search your local teaching hospital websites, they usually have some research going on too.

    I will be sure to keep you all posted during and after the study ends.
