The first app I used was iManageMigraine. I only kept it up for a few months. That was ages ago now.
I grew tired of using it.
I felt it had to be easy to add my data and not feel time consuming. Actually, looking back, I had a lot of expectations for a free product!
Anyway, it is much simpler to gather information over a period of time if you have the technology and the patience to learn how it works.
Keeping track of these things will help your doc and you detect patterns and hopefully move those migraines on to the elimination round:
- your triggers
- your symptoms
- frequency of occurrence
- days spent in the episode
I also use a Migraine Diary every day which is manual but it helps on those days I cannot log in or face a computer screen. I know, you know what I mean. It's an essential tool imo!

Name of App used: My Migraine Triggers
Likes: That you can add your own symptoms and treatments. I have begun tracking my migraines for a month now. The fact that I can check a box is a lot better than writing out the same symptoms every day.
I also love that it compiles your data into a chart! I feel like I will improve my treatment plan and get a proper diagnosis due to the amount of detail you can add!
Dislikes: Sometimes it says it saved, and then my updates are gone. It was on the way to my latest neurologist appointment. I had to quickly redo the revisions I made.
Type of migraine you have: Chronic Side Locked with Aura (trying to get my neurologist to do genetic testing for Familial Hemiplegic Migraines. I get numbness and side weakness, as does my grandmother. Also occipital migraine since I lose vision in my right eye immediately following pain in the back of my head. My grandmother also got this when her migraines were more frequent.)
How often you get migraines: Every day, especially during the winter. I live in Colorado and altitude and barometric pressure changes are huge triggers for me.
Your overall advice on this app: Save multiple times before leaving the page on the chance that it didn't the first time.
Do you recommend this app: Yes
There are also biofeedback apps like the Heart Math that has had amazing results. Training your body using biofeedback is a proven way to reduce the frequency and severity of migraine attacks.
Have a look.
There are hundreds of apps to help us track migraines, I can not do a thorough review on each one.
Thank you once again for submitting your migraine app reviews.
I, and other fellow migraine sufferers appreciate it.
