The pain level calender of migraeneinformation.de allows you to enter your current pain level and to evaluate their severity by a level between 1 and 10.
The evaluation of the pain is subjective, but you should try to correspond the selected values to the common medical pain scale:
- 0 = no pain
- 2 = light pain
- 4 = gnawning, unpleasant pain
- 6 = impairing, miserable pain
- 8 = intensive terrible pain
- 10 = worst possible unbearable pain
You have to enter only changes in pain levels. The application will then assume, that the same pain level continues unless you enter a change.
With your entered data the Pain Load will be calculated.
Besides from that you can store events (eg. holidays, pregnacy, work changes etc.) and measures (eg. changes in the intake of your daily medication, start of a diet etc.), which you can later relate to the development of your pain level curves.
Reporting of the pain level is possible over long time periods (even several years). The data can be condensed and displayed by day, by week, by month or by week day, which may allow you to detect hidden relations within the data.
In co-operation with your physician you may control, if and how successful a special therapie is. Also it may be helpful to show your physician on paper, how severe your pain really is. All reports can be printed by using the "Print result page" function.
