Keeping a Pain and Activity Diary will provide you and your healthcare professionals with a good understanding of your pain experience and what influences your pain to be able to manage it better. It is recommended that you complete the pain and activity diary up to 14 days to identify any pattern or trend.
In addition, your mood and/or sleep pattern can affect your pain. If you are experiencing substantial problems with your mood and/or sleep, keeping a Mood and/or Sleep Diary will help to inform your treatment. For example, your thoughts and emotions can either increase or decrease your pain perception, acting like a volume control dial in your brain.
