Make a record of the medication you're taking, the exercise you do every day, your meals, the places you have pain… Everything you need to keep track of. Record how you're feeling and your treatment from day to day.
Want to see how you're doing without having to take notes? Check charts on the progress of your illness, letting you see the past few days, the last month or the last year. Getting the big picture will help you see, for example, whether a new treatment is working.
Keeping track of your illness is important, but going to the doctor is essential. Create a report with information about your health from day to day and take it to your next appointment. Your doctor will be able to see how you're doing outside of your appointments to offer you a more personalised treatment.
