No 'wording' just be honest. When it hurts it hurts. Tell your doctor about whatever certain motions aggravate it, too.

The Earth is degenerating these days. Bribery and corruption abound.Children no longer mind their parents, every man wants to write a book,and it is evident that the end of the world is fast approaching. --17 different possible sources, all lacking verifiable attribution.

(I AM NOT A RATER- I work the claims BEFORE they are rated, annotating medical evidence in your records, VA and Legal documents,  and DA/DD forms- basically a paralegal/vso/etc except that I also evaluate your records based on Caluza and try to justify and schedule the exams that you go to based on whether or not your records have enough in them to warrant those)

"On your worst day". Remember, ROM changes depending on a lot of things. As stated, be honest, but also be honest with YOURSELF. Where does it hurt on your absolute worst day? THAT is where you stop them. I have had the same idiot physicians assistant give me 4 C&P exams and she always forces me knee or back even after I tell her it hurts. Nobody, nobody but you know how and where is that spot on your worst day. Just because you didn't work that part hard recently doesn't mean that it isn't usually worked hard. All VA exams are supposed to measure your maximum disability, not minimum contrary to what VA employees think.
