Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in Mean Pain Severity Score From Baseline to 13 Weeks [ Time Frame: Baseline and 13 weeks ]
    Pain severity measured on a Numeric Rating Scale (NRS). Range: 0 (no pain) to 10 (worst possible pain). Change: score at 13 weeks minus score at baseline.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of Patients With ≥50% Reduction in Mean Pain Severity Score. [ Time Frame: Baseline and 13 weeks ]
    Pain severity measured on a Numeric Rating Scale (NRS). Range: 0 (no pain) to 10 (worst possible pain). Assessment of reduction based on change in score at 13 weeks compared to baseline.
