Patient's Story: Mary-Anne M.



My name is Mary-Anne and I suffer from Costochondritis and chronic pain. I work with other chronic pain patients on a daily basis as a peer leader with the Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Pain program, or through a Facebook chronic pain page because I like to help other people in pain and learn about new treatments.

The PainScale community insights are great because they show what treatments others patients like me are using. The community polls help me learn from other patients, and I can interact anonymously and maintain my privacy.

I enjoy using PainScale because it’s easy to use. I really like the insights and learning how my pain affects my mood and sleep which are included in the logging feature.

Overall I think PainScale is a great app because it’s intuitive, easy, and helps me feel like a part of a community.
