Figure 5

Average recovery half-times of relative blood flow (rBF) (n HC = 23, n FM = 14), change in oxyhemoglobin concentration (Δ[HbO 2 ]) and change in deoxyhemoglobin concentration (Δ[Hb]) (n HC = 20, n FM = 12) in subjects with fibromyalgia (FM) and healthy controls (HC) following fatiguing exercise. The Student's t-test was used to compare the half-times between FM and healthy subjects. *P < 0.05.
