I'm on Peds now.

Yesterday I saw a 9 year old girl with abdominal pain. As I examined her abdomen I asked if it hurt when I pushed. She said yes. I said, Okay, scale of 1 to 10, how much does it hurt? She said 8.

She was completely well-appearing so I then backed up and said, Okay, scale of 1 to 10 with 1 being a paper cut and 10 being a train just sliced off your legs.

She got wide eyed and said 3.

Her mom asked if the real doctor could come in then.


  1. She totally has PID.

    Also, I like your pain scale. Do you mind if I use it?
