PMID: 31376882.


Discrepancies between self-reported and actigraphy sleep measures are common, producing ambiguity about which are better predictors of experimental pain outcomes. The current study tested if pain intensity during and situational pain catastrophizing following experimental pain were differentially predicted by self-reported or actigraphy sleep measures in patients with chronic temporomandibular disorder (TMJD) or healthy controls (HCs).
