Why should I use Migraine Buddy?

There are many reasons why you might want to use Migraine Buddy to track your migraines. The most frequent objectives of users are to find likely triggers associated with their migraines so as to prevent future ones. With migraines having such a wide range of potential triggers, it is important to track all triggers, including weather, pressure, food, noise, etc.

You can also choose to track migraines to complement your medical treatment. Our export reports and customized reports offer a comprehensive view of your migraines and many users use this function to better communicate with their doctor. Besides this, the reports also can be used as documented proof for your employer and insurance agencies.

Other than this, after prolonged usage of Migraine Buddy, you are also able to better understand your migraines for your own reference, be it in detecting commonalities in triggers, observing frequency of migraines, or if it coincides with environmental fluctuations.

Many users also use Migraine Buddy to track headaches instead of just migraines. Feel free to explore how the app can benefit you!
