Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to determine the effect a morning light treatment has on improving physical function, pain intensity, and pain sensitivity in people with fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS).

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Fibromyalgia FMS Device: Light therapy A via the Re-Timer® Device: Light therapy B via the Re-Timer® Not Applicable

Layout table for study information
Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 80 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double (Participant, Outcomes Assessor)
Masking Description: The outcome assessors and participants will be blinded to condition. The PI and lab manager will remain unblinded, and perform the fidelity and side effects assessments. Participants are asked and reminded throughout the study to only speak about their light treatment with either the PI or lab manager.
Primary Purpose: Supportive Care
Official Title: Bright Light Treatment at Home to Improve Symptom Management of Fibromyalgia Syndrome
Actual Study Start Date : January 31, 2019

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Fibromyalgia Impact Questionnaire, Revised (FIQ-R) score [ Time Frame: Up to 5 weeks ]
    The FIQR consists of 21 questions. Each question has 11 boxes similar to a visual analog scale. Questions cover the difficulty associated with various physical activities and the severity of symptoms.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Heat pain threshold assessed by the heat pain sensitivity test [ Time Frame: Up to 5 weeks ]
    Pain threshold will be assessed during a heat pain sensitivity task using a Medoc TSAII NeuroSensory Analyzer and an ascending method of limits protocol.

  2. Heat pain tolerance assessed by the heat pain sensitivity test [ Time Frame: Up to 5 weeks ]
    Pain tolerance will be assessed during a heat pain sensitivity task using a Medoc TSAII NeuroSensory Analyzer and an ascending method of limits protocol.

  3. Patient Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS) pain intensity score [ Time Frame: Up to 5 weeks ]
    The PROMIS Pain Intensity instrument assesses how much a person hurts. Scores range from 1 "had no pain" to 5 "very severe".
