How old are you? Male or female? How tall are you? How much do you weigh? Any weight change? Exactly where is the pain? On a scale of 0-10, what is it with 10 being the strongest pain? What is it like? Does anything make it worse or better? When did it start? Is it consistent? Is it getting worse? Any other symptoms such as shortness of breath, fever, cough, sputum, fatigue? Are you aware of anything which might have triggered it? Any medical problems? Any surgeries? Any medications including over-the-counter pills and herbs? Any family medical history?
