Measuring Your Pain

A pain scale helps you rate pain intensity. In the scale, 0 means no pain, and 10 is the worst pain possible. (Scales may go up to 5 or up to 10.) Rate the pain every few hours. You may feel some pain even with medications. But tell your health care provider if medications don't reduce the pain. Be sure to mention if the pain suddenly increases or changes.
