@JustinMcClanahan .. sometimes I think we need to draw up our own pain chart. Everyone's pain is different. Some people can tolerate more pain than others and use different words to describe their pains.
On most days my pain is like knives not bees. A level 5-6. Pain med will sometimes take it to a 4. If I am active like today it is off the scale. Doing laundry and cleaning bathroom is active. I and my husband take care of my 91 year old mom who has dementia. That is quite active … some days more than others.
