1) when the disease began;

2) how did it start;

3) how did it proceed;

4) when and how did the last deterioration that led the patient to the medical institution;

5) what conditions exacerbate pain symptoms or relieve them;

6) what effect the previous treatment had.

4. And the life history of the patient (anamnesis vitae) - the main goal is to establish those environmental factors (including household, social, economic, hereditary, etc.) that could somehow contribute to the onset and further development of the disease. In this regard, the following sections should be reflected in chronological sequence in the patient’s life history:

When did you start walking, talking? Material and living conditions in childhood, the general state of health and development (didn’t lag behind peers in physical and mental development?). When did you start to study and how did you study at school? Further study. Wasn’t he exempted from physical education while studying?

Information is collected about smoking (how long and what smokes, the number of cigarettes or cigarettes smoked per day). Drinking alcohol (at what age, what, how often and in what quantity?), Drugs ( promedol , morphine, opium , cocaine , codeine , etc.), sleeping pills and sedatives, strong tea and coffee.
