How do you keep track of questions you want to ask your doctor?

I've seen several of us post about various things we plan to ask our doctors at appointments.  How do you keep track of these things?  A written list?  A list on your phone?

    Good question, Jen! I usually use the notepad function on my phone — it encourages me to keep things brief, which doctors usually appreciate. 

    But I have made notes on whatever log I'm keeping as well. 

    Sometimes I've edited my questions down to my top three, typed them up in Word and hand them to our doctors — this works well if the doctor is frequently in a hurry and doesn't usually talk long during the visit. Sometimes the doctor has given me the answers at that moment, and sometimes he or she will call back or get the nurse to call back with the answers.
