Average recovery half-times of relative blood flow (rBF) (nHC = 23, nFM = 14), change in oxyhemoglobin concentration (Δ[HbO2]) and change in deoxyhemoglobin concentration (Δ[Hb]) (nHC = 20, nFM = 12) in subjects with fibromyalgia (FM) and healthy controls (HC) following arm cuff occlusion. The Student's t-test was used to compare the half-times between FM and healthy subjects. *P < 0.05; **P < 0.005.
