Abstract

This paper raises methodological issues concerning Quantitative Sensory Testing assessments used to investigate short term efficacy of analgesic interventions. Thermal perception thresholds were demonstrated to change over time even in the absence of an analgesic. Hence such assessments cannot reliably be used to make judgements about individual responses to interventions.
