This can result in hypersexuality, which is part of the “dopaminergic dysregulation syndrome” (see below). f.

Sensory symptoms can be distinguished into painful cramps related to “off”-period dystonia, and diffuse painful sensations also usually associated with “off” periods.

Upon closer inspection, however, other symptoms may be associated, such as acathisia, freezing gait, facial dyskinesia or axial dystonia, favoring the diagnosis of tardive dyskinesia.
