We know chronic pain affects your life beyond just pain. We’re working to create a more complete picture of the impact of this condition so that researchers, innovators and fellow patients understand. See what others have said and share your experiences in the cards below.
Before adding an experience card, check to see if a similar one has already been added below (we will combined duplicates).
Add an experience card: It's important to understand all the ways a health condition may impact someone's life. You may comment on cards already listed, or add your own. If you add your own card, list the category in a few short words, then give it a basic description. These descriptions may be edited for accuracy as well as to reflect information added in comments.
Add a comment within the card: Anyone can read about a symptom, what people often miss are the personal stories behind them. The comments section is your place to share your stories in relation to the category. Share an example of how this experience has impacted you.
Give an impact score to each experience: By giving an impact score to each experience card, people will be able to see which of these experiences tend to have the greatest impact. Within each category you can give between 1-5 stars, indicating how much impact that experience has on your life. It may be none, it may be a lot. Simply click on the stars to give it a rating, and see how others rate it as well.
