This is the best pain scale
I've seen to describe severity (though not
necessarily quality) of pain
Remember, whenever a doctor asks you to rate
your pain from 1 - 10, ask for a pain scale so you can
be sure you're speaking the same language.
1 - Very minor annoyance - occasional minor
2 - Minor annoyance - occasional strong twinges.
3 - Annoying enough to be distracting.
4 - Can be ignored if you are really involved in
your work, but still distracting.
5 - Can't be ignored for more than 30 minutes.
6 - Can't be ignored for any length of time, but
you can still go to work and participate in social
7 - Makes it difficult to concentrate, interferes
with sleep. You can still function with effort.
8 - Physical activity severely limited. You can
read and converse with effort. Nausea and dizziness
set in as factors of pain.
9 - Unable to speak. Crying out or moaning
uncontrollably - near delirium.
10 - Unconscious. Pain makes you pass out.
