Chronic Pain Tracker - iPhone app

Chronic Pain Tracker has been designed to improve the Patient-to-Doctor exchange of pain information.

Chronic Pain Tracker, the patient can monitor three key pain metrics:

· Pain Level - or the intensity of the pain

· Pain Location - where the pain is being experienced

· Pain Description - what the pain feels like

Sufferers of Chronic Pain know that each of these metrics can change day to day, or even hour to hour. This can make diagnosis and treatment of pain symptoms more challenging since patients most commonly describe their pain based on their most recent experience rather than using an evaluative process to statistically describe the typical pain symptoms being experienced.
