ABSTRACT
Objective To assess the prevalance and distribution of pain in Parkinson' s disease (PD) patients, and to describe the relationship between pain and development of disease and its impact on the quality of life. Methods 113 PD patients were assessed with Visual Analog Scale (VAS), Brief Pain Inventory (BPI), Unified Parkinson' s Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS), Hoehn-Yahr Scale (H-Y), Hamilton Anxiety and Depression Scale (HRSD, HAMA) and Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI). Patients were divided into no pain group, PD-pain group and non-PD-pain group. PD-pain group was divided into PD-pain direct group and PD-pain indirect group. And statistical analysis was performed for each group. Results The incidence of PD-pain was 42. 5% (48/113). And compared with no pain group, PD-pain group had earlier age at onset of disease, longer duration, higher HAMA, HRSD, UPDRS and H-Y score, higher daily L-dopa dose, with statistical significance. Compared with non-PD pain group, the differences in the onset of age (57.4±9.6 vs 65.9±8.7, t= -2.596, P =0.012), HRSD(12. 9±7.9 vs 8.7±3.7, t =2.605, P=0.014) and VAS (61.6±25.9 vs 38.0 ± 30. 1, U = -2.290, P =0.022) were also statistically significant. BPI was different between PD-pain direct group and PD-pain indirect group except normal work and relations with other people. Conclusion Pain is frequent in Parkinsonian population. Most pain was chronic and related to PD (PD-pain). These patients always have earlier onset age and poorer quality of life.
