The evaluation of the completed questionnaire follows a simple scheme:

The scoring is straightforward: the score increases point by point with increasing severity of subjectively perceived complaints in each of the 11 items (severity expressed in 0…4 points in each item).

By checking these 5 possible boxes of "severity" for each of the items the respondent provides his personal perception. This can be seen in the questionnaires.

The total score of the MRS ranges between 0 (asymptomatic) and 44 (highest degree of complaints).

The minimal/maximal scores vary between the three dimensions depending on the number of complaints allocated to the respective dimension of symptoms:

  • psychological symptoms: 0 to 16 scoring points ( 4 symptoms: depressed, irritable, anxious, exhausted)
  • somato-vegetative symptoms: 0 to 16 points (4 symptoms: sweating/flush, cardiac complaints, sleeping disorders, joint & muscle complaints)
  • urogenital symptoms: 0 to 12 points (3 symptoms: sexual problems, urinary complaints, vaginal dryness).

 

The composite scores for each of the dimensions (sub-scales) is based on adding up the scores of the items of the respective dimensions.
The composite score (total score) is the sum of the dimension scores. The three dimensions, their corresponding questions and the evaluation are detailed and summarized here.
