have a written note of how this affects your job as it will be last observation on this is everyone is affected by pain differently. what might be a 5 to veterans might be a 9 to every one else. We are taught to overcome.
What get me is they will ask what is your pain level today/right now. That what I was asked yesterday when I had an appointment. Yes in my crazy remarks I stated what part of my body do you mean.
