Brilliant...what I was looking for
I tried a host of other pain apps, and none fitted what I really needed.
I suffer from Gout and also an allergic reaction to NightShade vegetables. By setting up different lists, I could utilize this as an effective food / pain Journal.
For instance under these Metrics I did the following.
Location# created body parts -- Left Elbow, right Foot, Left Thumb etc etc..
Type# Dull, Sharp, Stiffness...etc
Food - Drinks# ( created this one ) Bread, Coffee - Instant, Coffee Keurig,
Medication# ( created this one ) Pain Med x 1, Pain Med x 2, None at this Time....etc
Then, under "Intensity" I edited all the numbers so that for instance my number 8 reads thus -- "Trying to stand or bend knees hurts, body pains in joints, fever, chills, hands or joints acute pain."
Now, I can see when I get an attack, and I've numbered it appropriately -- it's easy to see the History as it progresses up to a Plateau ( say over 7 Days ) and then drops off as my body heals and recovers. Plus, I can see what Foods or Drinks I was having BEFORE..the attack and how long it takes my body to recover.
In my comments field I will write how bad I feel, if I felt so etching coming on etc etc...
This app has been invaluable for me to Date, and I gotta give major kudos to the developers. Stoked! Thanks a ton everyone. Well worth it.
Like it a lot but
I had to purchase this for both my iPad and my iPhone. Most purchases show up on both devices. So I pay $10 the same app.
The app is very simple and easy to use nothing complicated. Lots of options to customize. I like that you download the files as a PDF to be able to save them or send them to your doctor. Right now the only backup is dropbox which is okay for now would prefer I cloud.
There is a image to use for head pain. Have contacted developer about one for the body. Like something that you can touch for all areas of the body front sides and back.
I think this app will be very helpful in determining what is causing my pain triggers and what I've done to help the pain so that I can see for the future.
I mostly track my fibromyalgia pain but this is also good to track pain that I'm not sure where it is coming from. Will be very helpful when I contact my doctor.
I am in the middle of having a massive amount of health problems and no diagnosis. I decided to keep track of my symptoms, because when I got into my doctor's office, I always manage to forget something that's going on. This app helps me keep track of ALL my symptoms, as well as various other information, so that my doctor can see patterns and number of occurrences. It's really helped us collect the data and use it to help us decide where to investigate.
I can't tell you enough about how much I just love this app. I use it together with my PHR, and using them both together allows me to keep up with my health.
