I have another suggestion - start a pain journal
. Six months to a year from now you may have difficulty recalling exactly what you've tried, what results you got, what progressed where & how much, what helped, what triggerd events... things like that. You can find all kinds of samples/templates on the web. I suggest reviewing as many as you can stand, then coming up with your own - tailored to your particular individual needs.
Google: pain journal
Google: pain diary
Google: pain journal template
(and maybe some of the related searches at the bottoms of the google pages)
