What's New in Version 3.5.3
I've had people suggest I keep a pain diary for years. I started dozens, but never seemed to be able to make one a habit. This solves that problem, and I've successfully charged daily for almost 3 months! It's easy to customize, keeps track of multiple conditions, and makes it easy to save and print to show your doctor. Because of this app, I realized the meds I was on weren't effectively leaving my pain, and was able conclusively show this to my pain management specialist so we could begin a dialogue to better manage my symptoms.
Seriously, this app is completely worth every penny. And since it was developed by a CRPS sufferer, it is designed for pain sufferers by pain sufferers.
As a side note, as a CRPS sufferer myself, I was thrilled to purchase this app knowing it was developed by one of my brothers and sisters in pain. Fantastic app, truly!
Best, most flexible and easiest option for tracking pain
You can track pain with just a few clicks and get pain level tracked to the calendar (including the weather) or you can spend a little more time customizing and add more detail. Who wants to crouch over, stare and poke at a screen when you are in excruciating pain? Not me!
I have migraines and set reminders for three times a day. I only enter as needed medicine. And I don't bother recording exactly where it hurts unless it is a change from my ordinary pattern. (This excellent suggestion came from the app's kind creator.)
Other apps are too much work or too inflexible or both. For example, my migraines are routinely three days long and one app only allows you to record up to two hour migraines.
This app provides just what I need without demanding too much from me. :)
Better than paper charts and all other apps!Much better than Penn syncs paper.
This app has helped me keep track of my pain in a very user-friendly means. The reports and charts it can generate will aid me in informing my doctor with documentation and support.
One of the best apps I have ever stumbled upon!! I've recommended it to my friends and family who have some type of chronic pain disorder.
