Symptom Log/app/journal?

Has anyone found a really good app or website for documenting daily health log? Looking for something that will have a way for me to input details about my day like what I ate, how much I slept, stress level, activity level, symptoms, pain, etc. I would like something that will help me aggregate that information over time so I can understand trends in what I do/eat and how I feel subsequently. On a related note, do people here find that it's possible to identify those trends and make… read more

I've known folks that have kept good records of their MS days to look for patterns but I'm not that guy. I hope someone will respond with some suggestions for apps that may work for you. I do, however, know there is little rhyme or reason to MS symptoms for me. I had double vision, my Popeye era, for a brief time and thought I would have double vision forever but then it went away as suddenly as it appeared. I know that's an extreme example of unwanted symptoms but you'll find that's MS symptoms or at least the ones I'm lucky enough to deal with (really, I've grown accustom to MS's unpredictability). I know your newer to the whole MS thing but you found this site and kudos. I also recommend a live MS support group. I know I've joined several different groups in the Denver metro. If you are interested, check the national MS website or hit me back and I'll tell you what I know (not much) but I bet people in those groups either keep or have kept journals like you are interested in

Hi, I know this question is a couple of months old but I found this app/website called flaredown. I downloaded it a couple years ago when I started getting sick but never used it because I can't seem to focus on anything that takes any bit of brainpower.

I was going to include a link but I'm not sure if I'm allowed to do that. That app is in the various stores for Apple/android. Maybe it could be of use. Flaredown .com

Thank you! I am doing that too but looking for something I can record more often too, to help me identify things that I should do more of or avoid on a day-to-day basis. I have symptoms (and one in particular with numbness/tightness in my left hand and arm) that can have drastic swings in feeling ok to feeling terrible from day to day and trying to understand what drives that, if I can!

Welcome to the team. I let my MS Nurse keep the records of my decline, it is not readily perceptible on a daily basis, so I just let her know of falls etc, and she tells me how I am doing every 6 months!
