Cosotchondritis- Calender

So a great tool to have with this condition is a calender. I didn't do this the first 2 years, and really regret it. Sooo, okay, you need to keep track of:

1) What irritates it
2) On a scale of 1-10, where are you at the end of the day
3) What meds you are using
4) What activities you did
5) Any therapies you did that day

You will begin to see a pattern of what increases the pain...it will help you see which meds/therapies are helping and what activities are hurting. This is important in the event that you have it long term.
