A Better Pain Chart

I hate when you someone asks you to rate your pain on a scale. It is a really hard task, I go back and forth between wondering if they think I am exaggerating to being afraid that if I don't give a high enough number they won't think its that bad. Also there are different types of pain. And when have the any of the faces that go with the chart on the wall ever properly reflected what anyone is feeling?

Well I have seen this chart floating around the internet a few times so I figured I would share. It still isn't perfect but it gives examples of similar pain and much more accurately describes my feelings while in different levels of pain.
