To help you and your healthcare provider get a clear overall picture of how you feel with PV, each of your scores for the above symptoms will be added up to calculate your total symptom score.
Use the additional space below to describe your general well-being over the past week or any other information you may want to discuss with your healthcare provider, such as what may be helping to alleviate or worsen symptoms, how you cope with symptoms, or how you feel after a phlebotomy.
The MPN10 is a tool designed to help you assess how your PV-related symptoms are making you feel and impacting your day-to-day life, so that you can better describe these symptoms, and any changes in severity, to your healthcare provider. Your symptom score is important, and individual, to you. It is important to remember that patients may rate symptom severity differently.
When living with a chronic condition like PV, it is important that you take an active role in monitoring your symptoms and discussing changes with your healthcare provider. Tell your healthcare provider if any of your symptoms become worse or more challenging for you, since this may indicate the need for a review of your current treatment or disease management plan.
The following questions may help you discuss your symptoms with your healthcare provider:
