Self-reported somatosensory symptoms of neuropathic pain in fibromyalgia and chronic widespread pain correlate with tender point count and pressure-pain thresholds. Dynamic gadolinium-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging allows accurate assessment of the synovial inflammatory activity in rheumatoid arthritis knee joints: Quantification of synovistis by MRI: Log in via OpenAthens.

EULAR recommendations for the management of rheumatoid arthritis with synthetic and biological disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs: The results will be published in international quesfionnaire journals. This also affected functionality and use of health-care resources. Introduction Pain in rheumatoid arthritis RA is traditionally considered to be pakndetect inflammatory origin. It is carried out in accordance with the Helsinki Declaration. Ann N Y Acad Sci ; Blood samples are taken by a trained laboratory technician and treated according to set procedures.

painDETECT Questionnaire (PD-Q)

Acknowledgments The authors wish to acknowledge the contributions of the staff members of the Department of Rheumatology and the Department of Radiology at Bispebjerg and Frederiksberg Hospitals and The Parker Institute.

Clinical examination and blood samples A joint count 44 joint index with the addition of the temporomandibular joints ad modum EULAR and a manual tender point examination according to the guidelines in the American College of Rheumatology ACR -criteria for fibromyalgia are performed by a trained questionnaige professional. Curr Opin Anaesthesiol ; This we consider to be a conservative estimate. Since NeP correlates with more intense pain, more severe co-morbidity and poorer quality of life, painsetect diagnosis is a milestone in choosing appropriate therapy.


Ethics and dissemination This study aims at supporting rheumatologists to define strategies to reach optimal treatment outcomes in patients with RA based on chronic pain prognostics. The decision to initiate or change to biological treatment is taken collectively by senior rheumatologists at the department’s biologics conference where representatives of the study are also present. You will be able to get a quick price and instant permission to reuse the content in many different ways.

Finally, this study can help to set focus on the fact that clinical pain management in patients with RA questionnairf benefit from a shift from symptom-based approaches to an approach targeting underlying pain mechanisms.

Participants entering this study are recruited from three hospital sites: Data sharing statement No additional data are available. An explanation for the apparent dissociation between clinical remission and continued structural deterioration in rheumatoid arthritis. In contrast to RA patients with chronic pain states who report constant high tender joint count, and high global health assessments and visual analog scale VAS pain score, another subset of RA patients indicate good treatment effect on self-reports despite disease activity according to, for example, imaging.

This technique correlates better with the histopathological findings of synovial inflammation than the conventional postcontrast MRI.

The PDQ was developed and validated in for the purpose of establishing qjestionnaire screening tool to detect the likelihood of a neuropathic pain component being present in individual patients. All images will be assessed blinded and paired by the same senior radiologist MB. BMC Musculoskelet Disord ; Do not understand Danish 4.

PD-Q – painDETECT Questionnaire

Furthermore, the study will contribute to the field within DCE-MRI by producing knowledge concerning detectable change in the inflammation load in a heterogeneous RA population as seen in daily rheumatological care, thus having a potential of generalisable interpretation. For a comprehensive description and overview of the single questions items in the questionnaire, we refer to the original article by Freynhagen et al.
