Abstract

Approximately two thirds of Parkinson's disease (PD) patients exhibit bothersome pain symptoms that oftentimes go unrecognized. In this study, 14 patients with PD volunteered to complete a computerized version of the McGill Pain Questionnaire using the PAINReportIt interactive software to assess the feasibility of acquiring real-time pain data in a clinical setting. 100% of the subjects completed >90% of questions in an average of 19.9 min; however, some subjects (n = 4, 28.6%) required physical assistance. 92.9% (n = 13) of subjects supported use of PAINReportIt across all measures. PAINReportIt was feasible as a data-collection modality among our PD cohort, and with modifications may be used as both an investigative instrument and clinical tool for the evaluation of PD-related pain syndromes.
