The 1-10 scale predates the 1990s, I think.

And I don't think we can rule out the possibility that pain is under-treated, or might be, depending on how we address the opioid problem. That's one of the difficulties: addressing the abuse without unnecessarily condemning some people -- possibly including some who never misused pain meds -- to suffer unnecessarily.
