The Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago’s Center for Pain Studies is conducting research to determine if Gralise® (a drug that is approved by the Food and Drug Administration [FDA] for shingles pain)  is effective in relieving chronic pelvic pain (pain arising in the abdomen) [IRB number STU00059992]. We are looking for research volunteers who are currently experiencing chronic pelvic pain related to the following conditions:

  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Interstitial Cystitis (bladder pain)
  • Ulcerative Colitis/Chron’s (colon inflammatory pain)
  • Prostatitis (pain related to an inflamed prostate)


Participants must meet the following criteria:

  • Men and women at least 18 years of age
  • Experiencing chronic pelvic pain for at least three months
  • Willing to take an FDA approved medication for research
  • Be willing to participate in 4 visits at the RIC Center for Pain Studies over 15 weeks

There will be no costs to you for being in this study. You will receive $30 after each visit in compensation for your time and travel expenses.
