Welcome to PatientsLikeMe! Congratulations on taking charge of your health and seeking support.
Sharing information about your health is a great way to learn more about how you're doing over time. It's also a great way to let others know what you've been through and where you are on your journey as a patient.
You can track your conditions, treatments, symptoms and more by using the MY HEALTH menu at the top of any page.
A great place to get started is the Dashboard. You can use the My Health Dashboard to review and edit all areas of your health that you are tracking.
On the Dashboard, you’ll see your conditions and associated symptoms, treatments and DailyMe, along with any other information you track, such as your upcoming doctor appointments, lab results, weight and more. The Dashboard is a great place to see changes over time for all areas of your health.
You can make updates to each section directly through the dashboard. You can also use the other options in the MY HEALTH menu to view more details on your reported conditions, treatments and other tools that are specific to your conditions.
On the My Conditions and My Treatments pages, you can make updates by clicking the button with three 'dots' […] To see a full history of a treatment that you’ve reported taking, click on the treatment name.
From there, you can continue to track how you feel by completing your DailyMe and MonthlyMe.
DailyMe provides a simple way to track how you feel each day. Your emoji choice and any comments you provide will show up in the newsfeed on the HOME page so other members can react to how you are feeling and show support.
MonthlyMe is an easy-to-use measurement tool that members use to track their health and wellbeing. This survey includes a short set of questions ranging from physical symptoms and sleep patterns to your outlook on life, such as feelings of connectedness and ability to participate in favorite activities each month.
We’ll also ask you to evaluate your experience with your treatments from time to time, so you’ll see reminder for treatment check-ins when you click on the heart icon.
Remember, it’s important to keep track of your treatments and their effectiveness for your condition. Therefore, we recommend doing treatment evaluations on a regular basis. Keeping your treatments up to date also helps others get real time reviews on what works best for you.
In addition, you may have reminders for specific tools for the conditions you've added to your dashboard. For more information, check out the details in the My Health Dashboard on your account.
