    I'm trying to finish my paperwork for my pain management appointment today, and I'm wondering abou this page.

    It's got 20 sections of between 2 and 6 words to describe the pain I feel. My questions is this...for different areas of my body I feel different types of pain, like the stabbing/burning back spasms and the shooting/throbbing arms. Am I supposed to look at a section, and if I have a sympton in that section, choose that word? Even if my over-all body doesn't have that pain? but maybe just my arms do?

    I know this is stupid, but my brain isn't working today and my appointment is in 2 hours.

    Thank you all~

    I would tell them everything just so I didn't leave anything out at all. You can always explain later. Good luck @ your appt.
