Keeping a Pain Diary



As a cancer survivor and patient who lives with pain daily, I have created a PAIN DIARY which you can use daily to describe your pain to your doctor. This diary will help you and your doctor find the right pain management regimen for you. Everyone is different, so keeping a pain diary will help the doctor see what helps you and what doesn’t help you, when it comes to the medicine they prescribe to you.

The pain diary can be printed and copied to place into your medical records, so your doctor can read it and understand what is happening to you on a daily or weekly basis. Therefore, they can adjust your doses accordingly, in order to find the right medicine for you.
