Keeping a Log is Important

Last week, I recommended that parents start a health log.  Coincidentally, I took my daughter to a sleep specialist last week.  IH seems to cause tremendous sleep problems for many patients and I was hoping that the Sleep Lab might be able to help.  She got a diagnosis of Hyper Awake Syndrome and yet another log to start keeping.  So, yes, those logs are important to the doctors!

Not only is my daughter filling out a daily sleep log, I also added a simple version of the sleep log, to her IH log.  I've already spotted a trend!  She got less sleep on the same exact days that she had problems with IH symptoms.  Take a look.  We chart out Symptoms, Medicines (effectiveness), Sleep Log, and School Notes.
