Chronic Pain Study
Link to chronic pain study

Two in three people with ADPKD have chronic, often disabling pain, caused mostly by visceral pain from polycystic kidneys.

ADVANTAGE is a major new research study looking deeper into the causes of chronic visceral pain with the aim of finding better pain relief treatment.

Complete this short questionnaire about your experience of chronic visceral pain - you’ll not only be able to ‘rate’ your pain but mark-up exactly where pain is felt with an easy to use virtual body map.

You can also answer questions on other types of visceral pain you have, for example, from the gut, uterus, and bladder.

If no studies are showing, please contact us if you are interested in taking part in future studies. Your data will be kept securely and only used to contact you about projects that might be of interest.
