She wears spandex and should not but asks if it makes her look fat.

Could the quote be construed as meaning that the patient's pain was constantly present, but the intensity varied at different times? Interesting wording, though.

That is the funny thing, if there be a funny thing, about pain--it distorts one's outlook on life.

Demand pain management now.

The first part sounds like something I've said in the past...I don't think I've used intermittently in a sentence before though, even to describe varying levels of chronic pain.

It's consistently inconsistent.

They should be glad they don't have my constant pain! It's around all the time!

Constant pain in the butt?:)

I get warm fuzzies from working in the SU seeing a quote like this.

And let me guess...they asked for a (fill in your favorite) narc script.

Good times.

Consistantly inconsistant pain is the worst...if I'm going to be in pain, I at least want it to be reliable.

Maybe it was pulsing pain?
