I hope we both find that young and healthy body in our afterlives.  I am so tired of the pain that never stops, even with pain medication I am still at the upper pain levels.  In the meantime life has to go on so we suffer in silence.

@hckynut  Sarcasm?  LOL


I'm confused by John's remark, normally he gives a lengthy reply.

Now @BirkiLady you know that is not my thing, especially with you. As far as each persons Pain Number?  It to me it is like one's Workout Discomfort Level. For someone like me, to reach a high level of "exercise discomfort", having been to my Max so many times running races/hockey Ref, and just training, my regular workout seldom reach the max number, and if so, for a very short period of time.

 

Pain thresholds? Everyone perceives their pain differently. I am one that has a high pain threshold, so things that seriously hurt others, might just be a slight discomfort to me. I know what I have dealt with that was the most painful to me, and I gauge every other pain downward from that point, especially when it keeps me from my passion for high level physical activities.

 

No sarcasm from me.   =^..^=

Hi @Lindsays Grandma,

 

Sorry my other reply on this thread confused you, and @BirkiLady. My last one should rectify my 1st short reply, I hope so.

@hckynut  Like you, pain is not a biggie for me. Your posts are always to kind and sweet. You make me smile from ear to ear, John. (Even if it has been sarcastic, I would not have been offended! It takes a lot more than that.) I'm back walking in my 'hood. First week was pretty rough. This week I'm steady on my feet and "walking tall" . . . sort of. <silly grin>

I went 12 hours with a spontaneous pneumothorax (collapsed lung) before I couldn't take it anymore and went to the ER so I'm not a good one to ask.

No one has ever explained or showed a graph for pain on a scale of 1 to 10. I'm always at a loss of what to put! Curious how others judge their pain levels. The highest level I've ever put was a five (5), which is simply a guess! Does anyone have a specific way to explain this to me? Thanks.

You might want to try doing an Internet search. Personally, looking at smiley faces never helped me at all. They all just look like silly smilies & I don’t see any of them representing any level of pain for me. A few years ago, a search turned up written explanations of the differences between each level of pain. That was helpful.

This is what should be hanging in doctors offices instead of those useless smilie faces.

Re: How do you gauge your pain level from 1 to 10?

It's subjective, it has to be.  They always say use 10 when the pain is the worst pain that you have ever had in your life....and then go down from there.
