OPQRSTU

  • Onset of pain (time, duration)
  • Palliative factors for pain
  • Quality of pain (throbbing, stabbing, dull, etc.)
  • Region of body affected
  • Severity of pain (usually scale of 1-10)
  • Timing of pain (after exercise, in evening, etc.)
  • U: How does it affect 'U' in your daily life?

May wish to expand to OPPQRRSTTUVW, with the extra letters representing:

  • Provocative factors
  • Radiation (how does pain spread)
  • Treatments tried
  • Deja Vu: Has this happened before?
  • Worry: What do you think or fear that it is?
