Since being diagnosed with Fibromialgia I've done a lot of reading, research, and talking with my Dr.. Now, I am not the kind of girl who is good at taking pills every day let alone the kind of girl who has it in her to keep a medical journal, but with my symptoms persisting, more frequent flare-ups, and after 10 years of chronic pain and nausea- I've started a Fibro-Journal. Well, I've started taking better notes about what symptoms I feel and when in the day I feel them, and I have a few other cut outs and notes I want to consolidate in there as well. Different meds I've heard of, notes on research I find interesting- things like that.
I want to try and be more proactive about my health- expecially as it seems to be getting worse.
Has anyone out there ever kept a medical diary of any kind? If you have, do you have any pointers?
