My journey with chronic pain began over 30 years ago, while as a young nurse working spinal rehab, I injured my back lifting a patient. I am now fused from L2-S1. I have multiple thoracic and cervical issues. I'm a retired RN/PA and I know and understand the frustrations on both ends of the treatment spectrum of dealing with CP. It's been my goal since 2008, when we started this site, to reach out and help as many people in pain as possible. We will continue the fight as long as we can. Please, if you can help us continue to help you and others, donate. Thank you.

Hi Stevie,
 
I've been using the Journal from the start and love it. I've given copies of a number of charts to my gp, psych, pain doc and the director of the pain clinic. I'm excited to hear what they have to say.
 
There is one thing that would make the charts much more representative of my actual pain levels. Could we add a med called Pain Check to the medications? That way I could occasionally click on it and chart my pain level, at a time other than when I'm actually taking a medication.
 
Right now, my charts show a fairly high, steady level. That's because when I take my long lasting meds twice a day, my levels are always fairly hi. And the only time I take IR meds, is when my pain has gotten too hi.
 
So the only levels I ever chart, are when I'm taking meds to reduce the pain. On the graph, it looks like my levels never go down. But after I take the meds, my levels do go down for awhile. It makes me worry my doc will wonder why I even take the IR meds if my pain level always looks the same.
 
Do you understand what I mean?

Bailey,
Good idea. Been thinking on those lines.
It would be a separate chart and the user would do it when needed.
Say their doctor wants an every 4 hour assessment of their pain levels.
Could do it for a few days, a week or whatever the Doctor needed.

A favor... Send me an email? That way it can be printed out and I won't forget easily. Embarrassed

And to all others, please keep the suggestions coming.

I Wish I could program in NO PAIN for everyone!!!

Hey Guys,
 
I made it work for myself. I input Pain Check as a med, 1 capsule as dose and pain level for reason. I entered it for two different times today, after taking IR meds, and just checked my chart. Shows exactly what I wanted to see.
 
Works for me.  Thumbs Up
