Sometimes it can be hard to explain pain you’re feeling when you visit a doctor. We hope this printable pain chart will help you communicate better with your doctor. Here’s how you use it: Download and print out the chart, then circle the places where you hurt. Draw a line from your circles to the pain scale number that best corresponds to the severity of your pain. Finally, place checkmarks next to the type of pain you’re feeling (aching, stabbing, burning, etc).
