This study was conducted on 15 outpatients with idiopathic Parkinson's disease, 10 on chronic levodopa therapy and 5 drug free, all complaining of painful syndromes. We investigated the perceptive and pain thresholds and the threshold of polysynaptic components of the blink reflex in patients and 8 controls. Our data indicate that as regards the perceptive, pain and R2, R3 thresholds, patients with and without levodopa therapy do not differ significantly from controls.

Abstract

This study was conducted on 15 outpatients with idiopathic Parkinson's disease, 10 on chronic levodopa therapy and 5 drug free, all complaining of painful syndromes. We investigated the perceptive and pain thresholds and the threshold of polysynaptic components of the blink reflex in patients and 8 controls. Our data indicate that as regards the perceptive, pain and R2, R3 thresholds, patients with and without levodopa therapy do not differ significantly from controls.
