My pain feels like…


My Pain Feels LikeThis is a brilliant website! Have you ever been in so much pain you found it too hard to speak? Dumb question, of course you have, you’re on a PN website. Well the mypainfeelslike.com website includes a pain questionnaire where you can either select from relevant various answers people have entered about their pain or you can enter your own in order to get a printed report that you can take with you to an appointment. It’s a fabulous idea and that’s because it actually communicates modern day pain language, none of this ‘what is your pain on a scale of 1 to 10’ narrow minded business.

You can view, read and learn from patients with similar experiences. You may also like to use the ‘my pain questionnaire’ to record your symptoms and take a print-out of the results to your doctor appointment.

Your assessment will help your doctor to diagnose the reason for your pain and also provide advice on appropriate treatment options.

    And pain tollerance, is a measure of your brains chemical return signal, to sending area to reduce its signal of distress (Danger), not how you controll your pain.

    Its is an automated chemical system.

    Some of use have such a good (chemical) pain tollerance, it becomes a danger to us.

      You hang in there too Scrapmetal. You’re so right. All of your comments so spot on. It’s good to learn all this but we can end up chasing our tails! Very frustrating. But we do keep on learning. we must! Thank you for your encouragement, I really appreciate it. I will certainly keep it up. About to publicise a crowd funding campaign to raise funds for a documentary on this hellish issue. It must be done, for all of us.
