From: Neural responses to a modified Stroop paradigm in patients with complex chronic musculoskeletal pain compared to matched controls: an experimental functional magnetic resonance imaging study

  Patient Control p = Value
Median values (25th, 75th percentiles) Median values (25th, 75th percentiles) Mann–Whitney test
Current pain 60 (40–70) 0 (0–0) <0.001
0 (no pain) – 100 (worst possible pain) NRS
Worst pain (past week) 90 (70–95) 0 (0–0) <0.001
0 (no pain) – 100 (worst possible pain) NRS
Least pain (past week) 35 (25–54) 0 (0–0) <0.001
0 (no pain) – 100 (worst possible pain) NRS
Pain intensity (past week) 64 (50–70) 0 (0–0) <0.001
0 (no pain) – 100 (worst possible pain) NRS
Pain intensity (average 3 months), 0 (no pain) – 100 (worst possible pain) NRS 64 (50–70) 0 (0–0) <0.001
Pain disturbance (past week) 0 (no pain) – 100 (worst possible pain) NRS 61 (50–85) 0 (0–0) <0.001
HADS 19 (13–23) 5 (1.5-9.75) <0.001
<7 normal, 8–10 borderline abnormal, >11 abnormal
