Wiki number of elements

Best answers
I would like to get other opinions on the number of elements documented in this HPI.

Pt is a 34 yo female that presents to ED with c/o back pain. She states started x 3 days ago. She states she "was popping my back too much". Her roommate is not rained to do this, but she lets her do it.

Thanks for any help.
I would say two, maybe three? location (back), timing (3 days ago), and maybe context? (popping her back?). I would say at the most 3.
Three elements

Location - back
duration - 3 days
context - popping her back (or her roommate is doing this)

Hope that helps.

Location: Back
Duration: 3 days
Modifying factors or context: popping back too much
