Invited to a pain study ???

Jan 05, 2019 5:18 PM

I’ve been asked to do a study at Manchester Children’s hospital about idiopathic chronic pain in 14 - 19 year olds. They said I will have to complete a questionair and then a 40 - 60 minute interview follows which is recorded.
During the interview I will be asked questions and also asked to draw what my pain looks like on a good day and what it looks like in a bad day.
This is where my problem is as I have no idea how I would even go about drawing my pain and for some reason I think this will be embarrassing to do. I also would like to know what kinds of questions they will be asking during this hour.
If anyone has done anything like this before or can help with what kinds of questions they might ask and how I might draw my pain please leave a comment or private message me

There's a topic on here that people drew what their pain looks like to them. I don't remember what the title is though.

I would assume it is a „normal“ pain drawing, like the one you can do in the diary section in this app. Although it will probably be on paper.
