Rethinking the Traditional Pain Scale
I have mixed feelings about some of the proposed methods for communicating about pain, but I’m glad the traditional pain scale is being rethought. I would prefer a scale with one or two sentences per pain level, to make sure patient and doctor are speaking the same language. See my earlier post on that topic.

i don’t get this one it seems like trying to quantify something subjective using other subjective stuff?
I agree! It doesn’t make things clear, for me. But I do think the data they collected about it is fascinating.

I agree with you. Pain is pain for me and when I come to you for help, please don’t upset me more by trying to categorize what I am feeling.
