    "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, covering 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.
