Many members have requested a pain tracker, a diabetes/glucose level tracker, and either an exercise tracker or more functionality added to the weight tracker. We wanted to let you know that all these trackers are on our list of to-do's and we're trying to get to them as quickly as possible. We thank you all for your suggestions. If you'd like to have these trackers added, please add a comment to this post rather than creating a new thread. We'll let you know when the new trackers are available. Thanks!
I LOVE the idea of the pain and exercise trackers! I have endometriosis and want to start really keeping track of my pain so I can show my doctor. But also, I've seen the weight tracker when I've clicked on peoples' profiles. I haven't used it because I don't particularly want to advertise my weight! I'd rather it be something only I can access.
I'd also like to see a pain tracker and an exercise tracker. Could you make the exercise tracker accessible to people with medical conditions that limit their ability to exercise? I've seen exercise trackers on other sites where the options are all things like going to the gym, whereas I have severe ME and for me, exercise can mean simply getting out of the flat.
I don't need a glucose tracker, but I'd love a facility for marking the times of day when I eat, perhaps in a similar fashion to the way sleep is marked on the sleep tracker. I need to eat every few hours for a variety of medical reasons, and I think there are a variety of medical conditions this is true of.
I think a pain tracker would be a great tool to present to the doctors during an appointment. I am also limited in the amount and types of exercise I can do due to Degenerative Disk Disease, Fibromyalgia, and other undiagnosed autoimmune troubles I have. It would be nice if the new exercise tracker could accomodate all of us in some way or another.
As I have said before for me the exercise tracker needs to include a step graph - so we can plot daily steps - the recommended level is 10,000 a day so it would be good to be able to plot how many we actually do - I am a huge advocate of pedometers - it was a shock to me how little I actually did until i got mine.
Also an inch minder - being able to plot measurements of neck, chest, waist, abdomen, hips, thighs, calves, upper arms, forearms would be very beneficial... teh current plotting of waist hips and chest on teh weigh ttracker is not motivational as the incriments are not noticable.
i would like a pain tracker. i am a t5 paraplegic for 30 years and my sholders and neck are always hurting because of pushing my chair for s30 years and i have myelomalacia . it would be good to track my pain in relation to the things i do physically and also the medications i try.
most importantly, being about to track pain in relation to activities
I am looking forward to the pain tracker and think it will help a lot of chronic pain Pt's keep track of their pain and what time and activities and meds if any contribute to their pain. This will be very helpful also in helping their Dr's treat their pain in the best possible way.
Many CP Pt's do not realize that everything they do affects their pain levels and the pain tracker will make things much clearer for them and therefore help them in controlling their pain.
Thank you Med Help, we look forward to the pain tracker in our community ( pain management) and appreciate all your hard work in making it possible.
Yes! A pain tracker would be fantastic! And with that, the ability to track drugs taken or things done to relieve the pain, like using ice/heat, lying down, etc etc.
Again, with this and with all trackers, flexibility to change the labels is key. Coming from a computer programming background, I can speculate on how these trackers work on the back-end and it seems to me like it would be easy enough to just change the labels on the back end that are used for calculations to just be something generic like Option1, Option2, etc, and then let the users create their own labels that mean something to them.
Like one person said, for them, just getting out of the house would be considered exercise (same for me, with my constant pain), but for others, a 50 mile bike ride would be something they would like to record.
I would love a pain tracker. I could keep track of the things that make my SI Joint "go out." It would be so easy for me to punch it on one a tracker instead of trying to keep a notebook. Please see if this is possible. A Million Thanks, Tuck
