This is the successor the the popular, award-winning, best selling, doctor recommended pain tracking app, My Pain Diary: Chronic Pain & Symptom Tracker. This version, My Pain Diary: GOLD EDITION, strikes a delicate balance between ease-of-use and a broad feature-set. This is a truly USEFUL app, and the newest member of the My Pain Diary family, which has helped over 90,000 chronic pain sufferers better manage their pain, improve communication with their doctors, and gain insights that would be hard attain through other means. Useful and popular features include automatic weather fetching, iCloud sync, basic medication tracking, photo attachments, graphs and PDF doctor's reports. This app is highly customizable. Everyone tracks pain differently, and this is a framework that supports just about any tracking strategy. Created by a chronic pain patient to track, manage, and report on chronic pain and symptoms, chronic illness, and mental health. That means there is no big company with deep pockets supporting this project. I am just one man with a chronic pain condition, a demanding day job, and a young family to care for. I just happen to be formally trained in design, self-taught in programming, experienced at marketing and customer relations, and am a chronic pain patient myself. That's a very rare combination of traits that is hard to come by, so I'm making the most of it, and holding my own against the big players. Enough about me, back to the app! Features: + iCloud Sync Support + Universal App + Highly Customizable + Easy to use + Track unlimited conditions + Track multiple/unlimited times per day + Add past entries (change entry timestamp) + Edit past entries ANATOMY OF A PAIN DIARY ENTRY TRACKERS: Trackers can be thought of as labels or folders that categorize and differentiate your entries. These are the key to tracking more than one condition and comparing conditions to each other. A common strategy is to name the Trackers after the diseases/conditions that you will be tracking. I.e. Migraines, Anxiety, Fibromyalgia, etc. These are just examples. METRICS: Each entry is composed of one or more optional pieces of information called 'Metrics'. For example, two commonly used metrics are 'Pain Intensity' and 'Pain Duration'. Metrics are associated with and shared amongst your Trackers. This means that you can set it up to use different metrics for different Trackers, keeping your entry pages clean and the cognitive load low. -- MEDICATION TRACKING -- + Basic medication tracking. -- IMPORTANT EVENTS -- + Record important events that aren't suited for a Pain Diary entry. i.e. Medical Procedures, Therapy Sessions, A slip and fall, etc. -- HISTORY -- + Color-Coded Calendar - Spot patterns and trends at a glance. Calendar days are colored based on the day's highest recorded Intensity. + Fully searchable. + Day View -- GRAPHS -- + Visualize and compare intensity over time with this interactive graph. Plot and compare up to 3 'Trackables' at once and one optional Weather Metric. + Email, print and share a PDF of the Graph. -- REPORTS -- + Create a PDF Report for your Doctors or for archival purposes. Share the Report via email and other standard methods. + Include Graph + Include Pain Scale Descriptions + Include Color-Coded-Calendar + Include Medication Log + Include Important Events -- TOOLS -- + Automatic Weather Fetching + Pain Scale Editor + Units preference - US/Imperial or XUS/Metric Want to see the app in action?

    What would I do without it
  • Useful App but crashes a lot

    By Weatherman12345
    I really like the app that I can track my conditions and my medications every day. I could edit the conditions and scales specifically to my personal problems. I would give it a 5 if it did crash on me. It did that so many times today and I couldn’t even use it.
  • No customer service

    Bought the app. Tried it for less than a week, and realized it didn’t work for me. I emailed customer service to ask if a refund was possible. No response.
  • The Fibro tracker I always hoped would someday be

    By FibroFriedaHater
    I’ve been trying to track all of these array of symptoms and pain levels and water consumption...omg everything!!! All in hopes that my logging can help my doctors and myself see patterns and adjust my treatments accordingly. This app has taken so much of the stress of trying to track that many things all at once. It includes EVERYTHING and if it doesn’t, you can probably add it. I’ve customized mine some. I fully plan on sending these reports with graphs to my doctor and saving them periodically myself as well. This app is well worth it.
  • Almost Perfect App

    By Hill8302
    This is a great app for me to track pain and symptoms for both of my autoimmune conditions. I have fibromyalgia and UC and although it takes a little bit of effort to customize how you want it, the customization is the best part. The only reason that I gave it 4 stars and not 5 is because there is no login or save method to save your customizations and logs. I had to switch phones recently and I lost all of the history that I had logged previously because it doesn’t save or store your information. Losing this vital data was a HUGE downfall for me regarding the app. Developers, please update the app to save our history. I will pay more money for that feature. It’s crucial for tracking my symptoms.
  • Excellent APP

  • Joyful

    By MariaJanette
    This app is wonderful! I can track my pain and fatigue. I really like that you can edit the pain information and customize it to what works for me.
  • So glad I found Drs love the detail.

    I’ve been struggling with infrequent migraines for years, but frequency and intensity has significantly increased in the last year. However, there has been no recognizable trigger. This application has enabled me to communicate extremely relevant and diagnostically viable information to my neurologist. It’s ease of use and intuitive components are amazing. I’m so grateful to have found this.
  • It keeps crashing!

    By Ashbash1
    It worked great for a couple days and now it keeps crashing. I open it and as soon as I click anything it crashes. I have tried removing the app and reloading it. Doesn’t work. I have tried utilizing the apps icloud restore. It still crashes. This is happening on both the iPad Air 2 and iPhone 6. Both are running on the latest update. PLEASE HELP!
