Calculate your score

Your doctor evaluates your symptoms by "scoring" your answers to a standard set of questions, called a Symptom Score Index. Your score will be between 0 and 35 points. Finding out whether your symptoms are mild (0 to 7), moderate (8 to 19), or severe (20 to 35) will help your doctor determine the best treatment for you.
