HealthKit Symptoms support

iOS 13.6 introduced a new Symptoms category in HomeKit. It allows tracking headaches, nausea, fatigue, and a host of other symptoms.

Currently, I’ve been tracking those in Exist via custom tags. It would be nice to just pull those from HealthKit instead, particularly as we’ll soon have a lot of nice apps to log this stuff.

A boolean “did they have this symptom that day or not” would be great for starters. Factoring in duration would be even better, in the long term.

    I agree this would be great! I’ve started to track my symptoms in iOS health, and it’s doubling up with my exist custom tags. Would love to have one place to do this! :)
