Self-Monitoring

The ability to self-monitor can be crucial to managing a chronic illness. Becoming aware of symptoms, how they affect us and possible triggers can help to reduce their impact on daily life. Here we look at some different ways that self-monitoring might help with managing MS.

Keeping a diary specifically to monitor your MS can be a helpful tool, recording how your MS alters in response to different factors - such as activity levels, stress or diet - or at different times. This information will allow you to understand what affects your MS and how. Some advice from the MS Trust on keeping a symptom diary

Apps can be a useful tool for self-monitoring and self-management. The following list of apps includes SymTrac, a symptom tracking app and MS Self which allows you to track symptoms and manage medications.
