Consistently logging pain and related health data,  ensures the data collected is accurate, without any gaps and provides a complete picture of a patient's pain journey. Incomplete data may give incorrect inference to those looking at them, be it the physician or care providers or the patient themselves.  Given everything a chronic pain patient has to deal with on a given day, remembering to log the pain may be the last thing on the to-do list and they may welcome the assistance to get the pain collected consistently. 


The Painscale app makes it easier for the patients to set reminders to match their unique schedules and situations,. This article lists how to manage reminders so as not to miss any log in the future,  and hence every patient's progress can be tracked with greater ease and accuracy.

A reminder in the Painscale app may be utilized to help log your pain at a certain time. In order to enable the reminder, access your profile page through the icon on the top left of the home page 

Upon accessing the health profile page, tap the gear or the settings icon on the top right. (All app configurations are typically available in this section.)

After navigating through to the settings page, tap on Reminders.

Once in the reminders page, tap on the switch labelled “log pain" to be configure reminders for making pain log. For other log types such as food log, you will see appropriate controls here as well.  Enabling the switch will take you to the screen where you can select the days and within the days selected,  you can configure any number of time based reminders.

After enabling the log pain reminder switch, simply tap the (week) days you would like to be reminded. Once you had selected the days, tap +Add Time to add any specific time you would like the reminder notification to appear.  You can add any number of timers per day and you can also easily delete an existing timer.   Once setup, the app will automatically remind you with notification for every reminder time configured, for all the days selected.  Now you do not have to miss a pain log because you forgot to log it. Happy logging, get well soon.
