Keeping a headache diary is one of the best ways to track headaches. Depending on how in depth you get with your entries, you can learn a lot about what triggers your pain and what helps treat it. I know you can find a few different downloadable headache diaries online, but there is no one diary for everyone.
I needed something quick but detailed for my daughter, who is only 13, to use. She has been having frequent headaches, but it can be difficult to get a teenager to take time away from her busy schedule to fill in a diary. This one I just made for her is small, quick (with circle the best choice answers), and detailed enough for her.
I’m posting it here because it is unique among headache diaries and I thought we could all use another choice.
This diary has the visual pain scale printed daily to help with rating pain. It also has line drawings of the brain (top, left, and right) that can be shaded or colored to indicate where the pain is located. That’s why I call it the visual headache diary. If you like it, pass it on, just kindly attribute it to this blog.
