F: Family History of similar problem? Frequency of pain (how often)?

Family History of similar problem? Frequency of pain (how often)?

     When patients get a problem, one area to review is family history. In my family, my mom and brother both had knee replacements, and my dad and sister have had serious GI problems. Things do run in families. 
     The second F concerns frequency of pain (how often). A patient can present with pain that only occurs at 5 miles into a run, or with each step. Just because a patient presents with pain, really understanding how disabling it is to a patient is easily misunderstood.
