Re: New to this forum
I agree with Ex and Jema. A 10 is the worst pain ever and with Pain Management some of us hope to hover around a 5 on a good day! If someone has chronic pain he/she will not be at a 0. A 0 can occur after acute pain, but not chronic pain. I can say that even though I've had severe spine problems since 2005, I have not experienced a 10 in all that time EXCEPT for during or after certain procedures (for example, headache that was induced during the myelogram as dye entered my brain and a spinal tap that went poorly).
