Has A Tracking Calendar Work For You? How Do You Use It?

Has A Tracking Calendar Work For You? How Do You Use It?

I'm thinking about using a tracking calendar, but I'm unsure what they want me to track.

Well, obviously the migraines...but how will it help?

Has anyone used one and found them helpful, and if so...what did you gain from it?

Thanks!

Have a beautiful day.

yes, I believe they are helpful although at first I found it hard to concentrate when keeping track as I found that if you record them after the migraine I would forget about the details. So I found just writing daily in a journal about what I ate, where I went, who I spoke with, or really just anything that presented unusual within your physical, emotional health. Such as you felt as though it was unusual that you had more bms or you urinated more or you became sort of breath or felt vertigo . Did you cry about something that normally does not affect you emotionally, Did you feel extra edgy or did you feel angry or upset about something. Jot down what you ate that day if you exercised or did anything different. Did you go to any appointments. Did you all of a sudden feel your senses were exaggerated at one point did you come accross something with a horrible scent that affected you. Did you over indulge in anything more that usual? Then if you felt an aura, brain fog or just dull. Then you can write if slept well last night or did you have an ache somewhere other than a migraine. When/or if you did get a migraine was it an immediate sharp stabbing pain at first or did it start hurting and got worse? Where on your head did you feel the worst pain was it only on one side. Does anything else hurt on your body when your get a migraine. Was it a bright day cloudy day? There are numerous things regarding your daily life that you can track that may have lead to your migraine or if it did not develop into a full blown migraine what did you do to stop it from getting too big and what is your pain tolerance before your take an extra maedation for it. What were you doing when you noticed it coming on, were you with anyone? Hope it helps

Good Morning! I have had the expensive one. My first one was $150.00 the next one was like $50.00 there was really no difference except for the price. I do wash one of mine. The other has a duvet cover you take off and wash. But they are great to have for calming you. I have Fibromyalgia so its a major help for me. Hope this helps. If you have anymore questions please feel free to ask. 💜

Hey Sheryl,
We seem to be the only ones on here! :-)

Weighted blankets. I first found them on a site that seems like it's pretty premium. They use glass beads and quilt in diamonds, so each bead is in place. Everyone seemed very pleased and talked about the cheaper ones not working.

The one they sell is around $150. And it's bamboo, which is cooling and not too hot. Tho you can put a blanket on top of it to make it warm.

If you've used different ones on Amazon, does one have an advantage over the other? Washable or not washable? Does one let the beads run around, or they made of something else?

I guess I should go study Amazon, but I saw you'd responded in my inbox, so thought I'd come say hi and ask you first!
