    Posted: Sep/07/2013 at 11:34am
I have been using the Pain Journal ever since it has been a beta program and have learned a great deal about myself just by looking at my pain levels from a monthly view of a pain chart. I know which Meds help me and which I no longer work or that I have allergies to. I can keep on top of my exercises by seeing how much I have improved over a month or more and some exercises that I have had to slow down from. At a glance my Doctor can see how the Meds are working for me and he then has a document to keep in my file of why he is subscribing the Meds he has and why. This is so much more than a Pain Journal. It keeps a daily log of how you are feeling, why your pain level has gone up or down.
The Pain Journal is user friendly.

I like the pain journal sometimes I forget but try to keep up everyday. It helps me by at a glance I can see how I have been doing throughout the month.

I've been using the Pain Journal from it's start, and I'm still excited about it's possibilities. I just printed off a couple charts and the introduction, to take with me to my pain doc tomorrow.
He said he was interested, however I didn't have a printer and they wouldn't let me use internet in they're office. So I'll ask him to take a look tomorrow and to give a copy to the owner of the clinic. I strongly suspect that he'll be interested in it.
It's an excellent way to track pain levels, medication usage, what is helping or worsening your pain, appointments and results of them, so many things. I've been jotting down a comment or two a day and having these show up alongside pain levels is really helpful.
I highly recommend the Pain Journal to everyone.
