I always recommend that to New patients, or anyone who is trying to get things figured out. You're be surprised what patterns & hints show up when you faithfully document. Try not to think of it so much as a diary as simply a list of notes; maybe that will help. Like a grocery list, except listings symptoms with the added info of when, where & what (including food). You can do this! :-)
You can get apps for your phone that remind you to document everyday.
Be careful with NSAID , those are the ones that will cause kidney damage, get on prednisone and don't take the over the counter pills, good luck hon, it's gonna be a roller coaster but you can do it and we are here for you <3
