    "Why do I get migraines?"


    Migraine Buddy is a personal tracking tool to help those who suffer from severe migraines. It functions a simple bit effective symptoms diary, helping you detect triggers for you to avoid and hopefully reduce the number of painful episodes.

    How does it work? Simply note down each and every one of your symptoms, with as much detail as possible, by answering a quick and easy questionnaire, coverign everything from how much it hurts, to what you did that you think may have caused it, and where the pain started.

    The more you use it, the more useful it will become in helping you detect triggers and avoid those nasty migraines.


    It's a beautifully designed app, which is both quick and easy to use, and genuinely useful.


    It may seem a bit of a pain having to fill in so much detail every time you have a migraine, but it'll be worth it.

    This ap is easy to use and is helping me to keep a track of my migraines. So much data being recorded (symptoms, triggers, meds taken etc) and i especially love the sleep pattern and weather records, both of which can affect my migraines. Fantastic!!

    This app was/is so useful for those of us suffering. When taken to the ER I am in no condition to explain what is going on with me and have handed over my phone and let them read the reports. This last time the ER Doctor was thanking me as they were able to diagnose and address in a short amount of time and at the right level. So many times before they would want to treat me for a stroke and would not or could not understand that that is just the level it goes to with me. I recently lost all information on my phone. When I contacted the developer they let me know all my information is stored on site and I was able to recover the information so I can bring it to my neurologist next week. When I reached out they responded in a matter of hours. Anyone with migraines should be using this application

    Great app! I will have something to show my specialist that will help figure out the best treatment. It's helped me to recognize when one is coming on. I didn't see the signs before... Very detailed, and I love the reports!
