WHY YOU SHOULD HAVE A SCALE DIARY OF YOUR SYMPTOMS

If on any given day you want to know how I am feeling, you can always refer to my scale diary. Anything greater than 4 means I'm probably not up to doing anything other than what is required of me (like working) if that.

Before appointments, I take the average daily score and make a line graph in Excel to better illustrate trends. You may see my most recent line chart at the end of the page.

I think this tool is the best guide for your clinicians to track your symptoms and the success or failure of any medications you may have started or discontinued. This is not just for those with Sweet's or Urticarial Vasculitis--it is for anyone dealing with daily medications and/or chronic conditions.

  • What a good plan, would work for symptoms of any long term health condition and track our good days and not so good ones

  • sorry to leave a negative but i cant really see the point of a graph when there is no cure just different creams etc to help a little for a short period of time, what do you think ?

  • I think thats a brilliant idea. Then you can possibly analyse the bad days and if you did anything different and see where you can improve
