Does anyone else question their sanity or objectivity when updating their pain diary?
My pain moves around a bit, mainly in terms of intensity, though recently has started affecting different areas. This got me thinking? Is the 'worst pain imaginable' rating something you question as intensely as I do? If I'm suffering from really severe pain, I can usually imagine something worse by the time I'm able to fill in the diary, but at the time I can't as it takes so much effort to fight it.
Do if I'm in 4 or 5 for a few days (or most of the time), change what is a 4 or 5 as if I'm in 4 most of the time it kind of dulls whereby I know it hurts but as I've got used to it to be a 4 next week would mean it was worse. Kind of like when you walk into somewhere with a bad smell. After a while your brain ignores it.
Does this resonate with any of you?
