Reply To: Measuring your pain levels


I scored 18 on the system which did diagnose neuro pain. I am not sure at all about ANY system of measurement. I cocked up at Walton this week as they asked what the 1/10 was at the moment. I gave worse figures than before but they then asked overall improvement which remains 50%. I said that it sounded nonsense but I balance out pain by doing less than when it eases. They agreed that was ok…so how do they work it all out??. In addition to neuro pain the guts still are crying which is a different thread and anxiety is causing dermatitis. The BP is high and increased med too so maybe it all reflects an overall picture.
There must be better ways albeit individual to the patient.
