Great App to have

Love this app. As someone who is challenged with fibromyalgia and CFS, this really helps me keep track of what impacts or possibly triggers flare ups. I would love to see a body map similar to the head map where I could properly document my pain and tender areas. Rheumatologist always want you to identify where the pain is as well as describe the type of pain.

I would love to be able to better point out the areas and the the type of symptoms associated with the area to have a report that I can easily provide to my doctor.

If it had these capabilities I would gladly give it 5 stars and pay for an upgraded version.

Great chronic pain app.

This is an excellent app for anyone with chronic pain who is trying to understand or control it. It prints an excellent Pdf file to print and hand in to your pain Doctor. It's a great app. If I were to suggest any improvements, I would improve upon making the different color flags that represent different types of pain, (head, neck, back, etc) I would make those a tad easier to use. Maybe it's me, that's a possibility. But I seem to do fine with the rest of the app. I just know that most people who have severe pain and can't work, at some point some depression starts to creep in. Whether you take any thing for that is your choice, but I would like to see the app make it easier to track them simultaneously. I know you can, but to me it's a little difficult, and takes away from the root of the problem when looked at the graph. Sorry, point being; I would just like to see it separate, yet viewed next to the root problem on the weekly and monthly graphs. I feel if it were easier people would be able to control the depression aspect easier. Pain is hard to control, but with the right tools you can track how the pain affects your mood.
Thank you for reading my Novel, sorry bout that!!

So Useful, And With The Weather!

I've used this for months, and I love it! The auto timestamp and weather log are so important to me, because they help me track changes in my chronic migraine pain, and I know they will help my doctors and me to see correlations with humidity, barometric pressure, or even just the sun.
The only downside I've found so far is with the Colored Flag system. You can flag each entry by color, so that you can tell the difference between your various chronic conditions' entries in the history at a glance. However, if you make a mistake and flag an entry with the wrong color, when you go back and edit that entry (which is entirely possible and very helpful), you cannot change the Color Flag. (Update from my original rating, you can delete the entry and begin again with the correct flag.)
Other than that, with all of the reports and graphs it can create, this app has become the most important tool on my phone.
