What is a symptom tracker app?

A symptom tracker app records and monitors various health symptoms over time. You and your healthcare provider use the tracker to identify patterns, determine treatment efficacy, and make informed healthcare decisions. CareClinic is the simplest and best way to track your symptoms on Apple iPad/iPhone, Android or Web.

Symptom Tracking Made Easy

CareClinic comes with a built-in symptom tracker. A symptom is any evidence of a disease. As such, anxiety, fatigue, and low back pain are all considered symptoms as you can perceive them.

Track mental health, behavioral, or physical health symptoms you experience. With tracking available in a mobile app, you can track health conditions and your health symptoms anytime. 

Furthermore, CareClinic enables you to easily track symptoms of chronic illness such as Chronic Pain, ME/CFS, IBS/IBD, Migraines, MS, Lyme, Cancer, Depression (MDD), PMDD, or any other illness.

You may record as many symptoms as needed, set the time you felt the flare-up, and post to your symptom journal quickly.

You can view your health symptoms in Charts or Log format. The correlations report makes it easy to determine if your symptoms are a result of consuming certain foods, allergies, or other health factors that you may have recorded automatically! 

There is no need to print a template and rewrite the same symptoms over and over. Once you have added a symptom to our profile, it can be reused for an entry quickly.

Your Personal Symptom Diary App

Uncover the root cause of your symptoms and manage flare-ups more effectively by strategically identifying patterns and correlations. By understanding what triggers your symptoms, you can adopt targeted approaches to mitigate them.

For instance, fatigue can be a symptom of many different conditions, but it can also be a symptom of something as simple as not getting enough sleep. Identifying correlations between your symptoms can help you better understand your condition and figure out what triggers flares.

Additionally, tracking your symptoms can help you identify patterns in your condition. For example, you may notice that your symptoms tend to worsen at a certain time of day or after you eat certain foods. Identifying these patterns can help you better manage your condition and avoid flares.

Parents can also use it to manage symptoms of their baby or toddler’s symptoms as they go through various milestones.

Adolescents diagnosed with ADHD or facing mental health symptoms like anxiety or depression will find symptom tracking instrumental in treatment planning. Regardless of age or gender, individuals undergoing treatment for various ailments should consider symptom tracking a key component of comprehensive healthcare management. Although CareClinic is designed for humans, we’ve seen many users use it for their pets such as dogs as well!


How do you track your symptoms?

Start by logging the exact date and time when you experienced the symptom. Rate its severity on a scale from 1 to 10 to provide context on its impact.

Additionally, document the duration the symptom lasts, as this is crucial for treatment planning. Note down any potential triggers or activities that may have worsened the symptoms; for example, eating a certain type of food. Always include any treatments or medications you’ve used to manage the symptoms.

Lastly, consider adding additional factors like your overall stress level or energy level at the time. This rounded view provides a robust foundation for diagnosis and treatment decisions.

How does CareClinic make journaling easier?

When using the CareClinic App for symptom tracking, the process becomes more streamlined. After launching the app, navigate to the Symptom Tracker section and tap on ‘Add New Entry’.

The app’s interface typically has fields aligned with the general tracking parameters like date, time, severity, and duration. Populate these fields accordingly—for instance, entering a ‘7’ in the ‘Severity’ field for a severe headache.

The app also allows for tagging, enabling you to easily categorize triggers or medications you’re using, such as tagging “Cheese” for triggers and “Tylenol” for medication. This digital approach not only simplifies the tracking process but also makes data review more manageable, especially when consulting healthcare providers.

What are the best ways to track my symptoms?

There is no one “best” way to track your symptoms. Some people prefer to keep a written diary, while others prefer to use digital tracking tools or apps. Ultimately, the best way to track your symptoms is the way that works best for you.

What should I track?

Some people prefer to track their symptoms on a daily basis, while others only track them when they experience a flare-up or change in their condition. The important thing is to track whatever information you feel is most important for you and your doctor. Some things you may want to track include:

1. The date and time of your symptoms.

2. The severity of your symptoms (on a scale from 1-10).

3. The duration of your symptoms.

4. Any triggers or activities that seem to worsen your symptoms.

5. Any treatments or medications you are taking for your symptoms.

6. Your overall level of stress and anxiety.

7. Your energy levels and ability to function during a flare-up.

8. Anything else you feel is important to track.

If you are unsure what to track, talk to your doctor. They can help you identify the most important information to track based on your individual condition.

What if I don’t have time to track my symptoms?

If you feel like you don’t have time to track your symptoms, talk to your doctor. They may be able to suggest some ways to make tracking easier or less time-consuming. Additionally, there are many digital tracking tools and apps available that can make tracking your symptoms quick and easy.

How often should I track my symptoms?

Some people prefer to track their symptoms daily, while others only track them when they experience a flare-up or change in their condition. The important thing is to track your symptoms as often as you feel is necessary for you and your doctor.

If you are unsure how often to track your symptoms, talk to your doctor. They can help you determine the best frequency for tracking based on your condition. Our app is designed to work offline. Once you’re signed up, you can access your data even without an internet connection. Changes are synced and backed up the next time you’re online.

What if I don’t have any symptoms?

If you are not currently experiencing any symptoms, you may not need to track them. However, it is still important to talk to your doctor about your condition and whether or not tracking may be beneficial for you. Some people with chronic conditions find it helpful to track their symptoms even when they are feeling well, to identify patterns or triggers for their flares. The most common conditions that require active symptom tracking are: Asthma, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Crohn’s Disease, Depression, Fibromyalgia, Headaches and Migraines, Lupus, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease, Rheumatoid Arthritis

Which symptoms can I track with the CareClinic App?

You can track all symptoms in the CareClinic App such as fatigue, pain, stiffness, headaches, difficulty sleeping, difficulty concentrating, depression, anxiety, gastrointestinal problems, and flare-ups. For a complete list of all symptoms that can be tracked in the app, please see our symptom tracker.

What is the difference between active and passive symptom tracking?

Active symptom tracking is when you proactively track your symptoms on a regular basis, even when you are feeling well. This can help you identify patterns in your symptoms and flares. Passive symptom tracking is when you only track your symptoms when you are experiencing them. This can be helpful for monitoring your symptoms and flares, but may not be as helpful for identifying patterns.

How is a Symptom Checker App different?

A symptom tracker is designed to record and monitor your health symptoms over a period of time, allowing for the identification of patterns, triggers, and treatment effectiveness. In contrast, a symptom checker is an online tool or app that provides immediate, preliminary medical advice based on the symptoms you input, often suggesting potential conditions you might have.

While a symptom tracker is for longitudinal observation and is often used in consultation with healthcare providers, a symptom checker serves a more immediate, diagnostic function and is not a substitute for professional medical advice.

Does the symptom tracker offer medical advice for my medical problem?

The symptom tracker is not intended to offer medical advice. If you are experiencing symptoms, please talk to your doctor. The tracker is only meant to help you track and monitor your symptoms.
