  1. [substance] denotes concentration of the substance. BKN = Bradykinin, HHB = deoxy-haemoglobin, OHB = oxyhaemoglobin, K+ = potassium, IL-6 = interleukin 6, LDH = Lactate dehydrogenase, PEG = repetitive low-force exercise performed unilaterally on a pegboard, STR = STROOP test.
  2. Trapezius myalgia (TM) was denoted 1 and healthy controls (CON) was denoted 0. VIP values and sign of coefficient (coeff) are given. Note that the variables are grouped and sorted within each variable with respect to the time points. A positive coefficient indicates that TM has high values on this variable compared to CON and vice versa. Note the inverse construction of blood flow.
