Free Printable Symptom Tracker
Believe it or not, I've seen an awful lot of printables.
From the more traditional meal planners and monthly calendars to entire packs dedicated to helping home buyers narrow down their choices, you'd think I'd seen them all!
But we've got a printable coming at you today that is one of the versatile and useful printables I've seen in a good long while, and I'm so excited to share it with you! This actually started as a request from one of our Sweet Life Society members.
This printable is a fillable symptom tracker that can be used to track everything from chronic pain to your cycle to mental health. I love the way this printable allows you to get a lot of information about your day at a quick glance. Real quickly, I'd like to walk you through how you can use each section.
SECTION 1: TRACKING TRENDS
The first part of this printable is laid out as a simple graph. This is a great place to track the number one “problem” or “symptom” that you are trying to get information about. That could be pain level emotional health or mental health just to name a few. You'll be able to quickly compare how you've been doing over the last two weeks. I've left spaces for you to fill in what each ranking means to you instead of the sometimes arbitrary 1 to 5 scale.
SECTION 2: TRACKING SYMPTOMS AND HABITS
The second section is a place for you to check off symptoms, habits, or potential triggers. If you are trying to find a cause for your pain or see if your exercise is related to your mental health, this section is for you! It allows you to check off each day what did and did not happen during the day.
SECTION 3: TRACKING QUANTITY OR INTENSITY
This third section was originally intended as a water tracker. As you can see, there are 8 little boxes you can fill in (for 8 cups of water, of course!) But it could also be used for tracking something such as headache intensity or miles run on the treadmill.
SECTION 4: FIND SOMETHING POSITIVE
This last section is my favorite! We left the heading blank on purpose, so you can make whatever you'd like to out of it. But I like to put “every day I will” at the top, and then choose one or two actions I will complete every day. It is empowering to tell yourself you are going to do something and then to do it. Don't make these too difficult or grandiose, just find some small thing you want to add into your day to day routine and set your mind to getting it done.

I hope you love this printable as much as I do, and especially if you are using it to track a health concern, I wish you all the best, much healing, and much grace with yourself as you search for answers!

looks good for me! thanks for sharing.
Wow, this is great! You can see so many different, important (and probably interconnected) parts of your life at the same time. This looks so useful. Thank you for sharing it! 🙂
I love your account ??
I also love planning/planners
I think this is such a smart and useful idea. Thank you for coming up with it! I will be ordering THIS for my planner!
I am a planner freak and started using my I Heart Planner this year. As a planner freak, at first I thought it wasn’t going to be my style, with the inserts to keep track of, etc. i even tried to return it at first. I AM SO GLAD I DIDN’T! I LOVE LOVE LOVE everything about this planner. I love the insert packs I’ve gotten for it. I not only use my planner as a calendar or appointment tracker, or organizational tool for everything in my life; but also to keep track of what I’ve already done, how I felt about it, good memories, not-so-good ones.
Laura, I love this idea. I love most of my inserts (not all are for me) and I have also really become addicted to your blog. Thank you!

I kinda have tears in my eyes…not kinda, I do! (lol) I needed a symptom tracker for myself. Badly. I have a ton of illnesses. I’m only 38 and (sigh…) I’m now at the point where I need help at home. The amount of things I cannot do for myself anymore tripled this year. I need medical help at home as well. I’m fully capable of making a symptom tracker for myself, but on a whim, did a quick search, chose this one, again, merely on a whim. I’m a very spiritually connected individual, and the immense amount of internal fluttering inside me over THIS blog, THIS woman…There’s something special here!!!! My eyes are tearing again…to those reading, and to Melissa herself….there’s something incredibly magical here!!! Something tells me the Universe is LIT UP inside you….bless you Mama!!! And thank you for your service!!! I am soooo overjoyed and thrilled I found you!!! Can’t wait for all to come!!! : ) : ) : )
Thank you soooooooooo much for this. I am currently having new/bad intracranial hypotension symptoms and needed a good example of how to track these symptoms for my doctor. THANK YOU!!!!!!
I haven’t been able to find/download the pages – I’ve entered my name & email, but not sure what else I need to do. I have chronic kidney disease & kidney pain and would really like to track my symptoms with your tracker page – it has such great info to keep an eye on with my illness.
