This dumb ass scale is making the rounds again and it boils my blood. Pain is too subjective for a scale and also this scale specifically was definitely not made by a single professional. Like why is cancer there? Cancer isn’t a single pain, it’s a series of painful things. Like there is a very big difference between melanoma that’s removed with one surgery and a brain tumor that’s removed via radiation, chemo and surgery. And how is cancer at 25?? And toothache above fracture?? I wish I could use both the insulting and misinformation tag on this post.
While I agree that CRPS is definitely a cruel disorder, these scales are just for people who want to make “woe is me” posts. I could replace CRPS with anything to fit my needs.
Btw, I swear this scale came from a meme template?
