HOW TO KEEP A PAIN DIARY (free download)…

Very useful read by Blogger Barbara at http://www.backpainbloguk.com

Sometimes the best way for a member of your medical team to see the full picture of your pain is to have it all written down.Chronic pain conditions are often hard to diagnose. Your symptoms may come and go, and you might be struggling to explain what you’re feeling. It can all be very frustrating. This is where the diary comes into the frame and why I put this simple pain diary sheet together, I found it so much easier to fill in on a daily basis. Showing your doctor a comprehensive diary of your pain levels and any lifestyle changes that might be affecting your pain can help your doctor spot triggers for a flare-up or understand what’s working (and what needs tweaking). Feel free to copy and paste mine below (two day page diary).

  1. I’ve always written down and taken lists to my doctors. By their reactions they all always seemed surprised that I had one, but that wont stop me. I’ll keep taking my lists with me because I always go blank when asked questions or just simply when it’s time to think. So I agree with you. Wright symptoms down.

    1. I used lists for years before progressing to notebooks to write things in. I still have one somewhere with my own TPT and pain points body sketch from 8 or 9 years ago that went to every consultation at that time.

      Wishing you wellness and less pain hunny 🙂
