The purpose of this study was to document daily pain experiences through self report measures with the goal of obtaining information on the environmental events surrounding sickle cell pain episodes. Seven participants, ages 7 to 16, completed daily pain diaries and logs for approximately 6 weeks. Descriptive data from the diaries included information on daily pain intensity level, medication use, and school and activities missed. Logs were analyzed to identify pain location and potential variables associated with pain episodes. The usefulness and effectiveness of diary and log data are discussed.
