abstract
Objectives: This investigation aimed at determining the validity and reliability of the Dutch neurophysiology of pain test in chronic fatigue syndrome [CFS] patients with chronic widespread pain. Methods: The Dutch neurophysiology of pain test was completed by 61 CFS patients with chronic pain and 31 health care professionals. Patients repeated the test 24 hours later. Results: Performance on the test was better [p < 0.001] for professionals [10.71 +/- 3.08] than for patients [5.95 +/- 2.99], supporting the validity of the test. Test-retest reliability [ICC = 0.756] and internal consistency [Cronbach's alpha = 0.769] were fair for CFS patients. Conclusion: The Dutch neurophysiology of pain test appears valid and reliable in CFS patients with chronic pain.
