I find it to be a fabulous tool and my orthopedist thinks it's great, too.  I use it for my ankle problem, and really use it to rely back to dates/symptoms when passing a kidney stone -- it takes out the guessing game when the docs ask about history, etc.

Hre's the link for the pain tracker:

I have used it and found it an excellent way to track my pain.  However my time is so very limited that it was one of the things that had to be eliminated from the demands on my plate.

I found it very helpful when I was going through trial and error with different pain medications. I was also able to track what made my pain worse. Again it is an excellent tool. I encourage everyone to try it.

I thought about it but decided like Tuck that it was one more thing on my plate to do. I really don't have the time.

I used to use it, for my Fibro, but I decided to get rid of it. I believe it is a good, helpful tracker but luckily, knock on wood, I haven't had that much pain lately. :)

I like the CF/FMS rating scale better because it doesn't take as much time.

I've been using it and while I find it helpful, I also find it frustrating that it will only record one level of pain in an area per day. My pain fluctuates greatly during the course of the day and it would be nice to be able to record those fluctuations.

I have pain in so many different areas and it moves around so much that I found it extremely time intensive to update.  I can really see it beneficial if I modified what I use it for or for someone with more concentrated pain.

I used to use this but my pain changes so much during the day and it was so time consuming that I just got rid of it. I do try to keep track of it in a notebook though.

Oh cool! I didn't know about this, I voted yes since I'm going to start using it, it sounds like I can track my biofeedback progress with this.

I can't get the pain tracker to run on my computer.  It is so slow and it won't follow my commands.

Contact MedHelp where it says "contact"..In there will be a place where you can enlist the help of Tech support. Maybe that will help. :)
