We are looking for individuals to participate in a study that aims to gain a better understanding of risk factors for insomnia in people with and without the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and to observe its effects on pain sensitivity and inflammation. This study will consist of several various in-person visits that span from 3 visits within an 8-day period, and if qualified for the second branch of this study, an additional 6 visits once a week for the following 6 weeks. During the visits, participants will be asked to complete a sleep interview, wear a sleep device overnight, answer questionnaires, as well as perform pain testing and blood draws. Participants will be compensated appropriately for their time. You may qualify if you have good or bad sleep and are above the age of 18. We are recruiting both individuals who are HIV positive and individuals who are HIV negative. Please contact Dyan at dywhite@uab.edu or call 205-934-8734.
