Understanding Symptoms

Here you can record and track your symptoms. Your teams may have requested certain symptoms for you to enter but you are also free to record whatever you like from the entire list. This helps you and others track your progress over time.

How can I record my symptoms?

Click 'Add symptoms', find the symptom you want to record and choose the appropriate level from the options.

Click 'Add symptoms'

Choose appropriate severity for each symptom you wish to record

What are institutional symptoms?

Institutional symptoms are just symptoms that the team looking after you want you to record. This is to help them track any changes in symptoms and manage your care. The information you enter can help them detect if they need to change your care so it’s important that you do this if possible.

As well as appearing on the Symptoms page, the symptoms to record will also be shown on your homepage (if you have not yet recorded them that day).

Can I record additional symptoms?

Absolutely. Just because the team caring for you are interested in a subset of symptoms does not mean these are the only ones you should be entering. This is your record, and you should record anything you want to that is going to help you with your care.

To record symptoms, just click on the Symptoms page, click on the 'Add symptoms' button as described above and record a severity for any symptoms you are experiencing.
