Results of an interesting study on tracking fibromyalgia symptoms. All I can say is "duh".

They just need to read our forums and send us the money they waste on these studies!

It also will help with SSD cases if docs write those symptoms in medical charts, which unfortunately I have heard some don't!!!

If your doctor or insurance uses software for charting (and most doctors do), ask if they can scan a printout and attach it to your record. Most medical charting or careplanning software companies use have this capability, to attach documents to a patient or an episode of care. Just FYI.

Hello???? What genius dreamed this study up?? I agree about the money too. It could help me pay off my house maybe. Well, I don't think we would get that much. But we can dream, right??

When I see my endocrinologist, he plugs my meter into the computer and is copies all my recording since the last visit. That is so much nicer than having to record everything yourself. Thanks for sharing that information~Christine
