Magic Markers to mark Pain Areas
If you employ a health care aide or are caring for an elderly person (or child) and they have pain, use a magic marker to put a circle or x on the area of discomfort. Pain often is transient and disappears by the time they get to a physician (which may be days later), especially if they take a painkiller. Pain is very important in making a diagnosis. The human body "forgets" pain very quickly.

That's a good idea.  I've been using MedHelp's pain tracker and like that I can mail it to my doctor.  It shows (with color intensity) where there's pain, when, and what part of the body.  Just a thought to use with your idea.
