Associations between pain thresholds for heat, cold and pressure, and Pain Sensitivity Questionnaire (PSQ) scores in healthy women and in women with persistent pelvic pain.



The Pain Sensitivity Questionnaire (PSQ) is a self-rating instrument developed as a time- and cost-saving alternative to quantitative sensory testing (QST). The aims of the study were to assess 1) the associations between PSQ scores and QST in women with persistent pelvic pain and in pain-free controls, and 2) to what extent demographic variables and psychological distress influenced PSQ scores.
