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.
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'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.
