Ross i agree with you i want to scream every time someone asks me what number my pain level is. I think its a ridiculous question as everyones pain tolerance is different and what might be a 7 to one person another person could rate it as a 4 or 5. It Also depends on what i do. If i lie still on my back then its very managable but when i try and get up the number shoots up. So i never know how to answer that question either.
