- Now let’s talk about pain -The doctors use the common 1-10 pain scale to tell them where your pain is at any given time. My PT’s talk about 3 parts of pain:
- 1) intensity of pain, is it a 1 or a 10 ----or somewhere in between
- 2) Frequency of flare-ups, Sometimes , all the time or am I in remission?
- 3) Duration of flare-ups. How long do they last? Keep a journal to recite all of these to your Dr or PT.
