Making the Pain Scale Work For You

How many times have you found yourself gazing at a form depicting a scale from one to ten and asking you to assign your pain a number? How many times have you pondered whether indicating that your present pain level is a three might impact your care, even though sometimes it’s as high as a seven?  Pain scales can feel severely limiting, but they are invaluable to health care providers to track your progress with them (and even required by some insurance companies!)
Following are some serious articles to help you most effectively use the pain scale at maximum benefit.

And here is one not so serious, but potentially more useful pain scale option.

  1. I can never measure how much I hurt without a scale. When I am in a lot of pain I don't want to rate myself too high or too low because I want to get the right treatment. Pain tolerance is different for every person but if we had a scale, I think it would really help when people wanted treatment. Hopefully they use a universal scale that everyone can use to get the right help.
