Live Better with Pain Log

Many things can affect your pain. These can include stress, sleep, money worries, and even the weather. This log can help you track the everyday things that have an impact on your pain.

When you understand what makes your pain worse, you can begin to work on ways to reduce or deal with your pain “triggers.”

The more you know about how your body reacts, the more you can be in control. And being in better control can help you be less afraid and better able to manage your pain. We encourage you to fill a chart out at the end of each day or several times a week. You also can print out a report and take it to your doctor visits. It can help you talk more openly with your healthcare provider so that together you can find ways to improve your quality of life.
