The Symptom Diary helps you talk to your doctor or medical professional about your condition rather than wasting time trying to remember when your symptoms occurred.

The Symptom Diary makes it easy and intuitive to record symptoms when they occur. It documents your symptoms in a chart and detailed table that you can email to yourself and/or contacts you select.

Each diary entry records a symptom, the bodily location and the time. Optionally, medications taken and comments may also be recorded. The location is selected on a map of the human body. Medications are selected from a searchable database.

The list of symptoms and medicines can be edited. Symptoms and medicines can also be marked as favourites for easy selection.

The Symptom Diary is developed by Beautiful Software in Australia with an aim to improve health outcomes for Australians and Australian families. Beautiful Software is owned and run by Stuart Harris, a sufferer of Crohn's disease for 20 years.

The PDF export feature is terrible

The PDF doesn't print correctly because of the nonstandard page size. It also creates the PDF as an image instead of text. This is such a detriment to the app that it renders it useless.

So far so good

So far so goo with this app. I like being able to show where the pain is at and the intensity. The thing I like most is the symptom check list. The only drawback is that you can only select one symptom at a time.

Great so far! One suggestion...

I've only used this for one day so far, so I don't have much to say. I think the layout is really easy and intuitive to use. I like how the chart can track your symptoms and medications that you've been taking very easily. And I really appreciate that the diary entry leaves you plenty of space to write a long story if you like. My one suggestion is that you allow people to enter their own medicines, edits those, if they like in the same way they can edit the symptoms list. I say that because I'm actually trying to use some herbs to fix my problems, so I would like to add them as my medicines as well--not just the biotech ones from the pharmacy. This way, I'll be able to track everything that has an effect on my health and my symptoms. :-)
