Managing your Pain: Using a Pain Diary

Thursday, March 20th, 2014

Pain is almost impossible to ignore when it’s present, but sometimes easy to forget when it’s gone.  Sometimes small changes that might not be noticeable from day to day can have big effects over longer periods of time.   Using a diary to rate your daily pain levels is a simple and effective way of helping you track your pain over time and learn what is most helpful for you in relieving your pain.

A simple pain diary like the one here will only take a couple of minutes a day to complete, and you’ll find that having this information to share with your doctor will be invaluable in determining the best therapeutic techniques for you in managing your pain.
