Has anyone ever looked at months/years past side by side with numbers and any notes you made about what was going on a particular day (weather change/exposure to paint fumes etc) to see it you could identify any trends on what flares you off or maybe why you were having a bad time at a particular time? I've always kept notes and my numbers but over the last week, have just now made the time to put everything in excel side by side, month by month, year by year and I've been able to at least reinforce what I thought kicked me off-weather is a definite, stress and lack of sleep are definite and exposure to fumes. I was able to see in black and white, how my lungs reacted to med changes too (I always note when I make any changes to meds). It really slapped me in the face how badly I need my meds twice a day! I also saw that 5 years ago, my numbers were significantly better but that was when I was very active in martial arts three nights a week for 2+ hours each night. I've lost lung capacity over the past 3 years but since I changed jobs, got out of the stress and get more rest (sometimes), 2017 is rebounding and is running higher numbers overall by month than last year.
Has anyone else ever looked at things like this to see if you could identify anything??
