Migraine Buddy

Have any of you guys used the app migraine buddy? Is it actually helpful? Or is it a waste of time and just makes you feel worse when you realize how many migraines you actually have an how you don't have any great treatment options. I find myself getting very discouraged when I log more than one migraine a day. So far, I have been logging for 12 days and not one day without an entry, and usually multiple entries a day.

  1. Hi there, I used it last year for around 9 months. It just showed me what I already knew but didn't actually help me manage any better. I suppose it is a good tool to keep records if you want to show your doctor. It can be a little depressing when you see the frequency of your headaches.

    1. I have to keep migraine logs for my headache specialist, and I agree that seeing the frequency is depressing. Especially when you have an especially bad flareup and they get more frequent for a couple of months.

  2. Hi there K_nelson,

    I too agree with member Wero. While it can certainly be difficult seeing it in black & white the number of days impacted, we have heard from many community members that it does help to serve as a useful tool especially in regards to sharing important information with your doctor. Thanks for you question! -Joanna (Migraine.com Team)

  4. I've been using Migraine Buddy for a couple of months, now. I like that it's really easy to use, you can write notes describing whatever you want to add and I also use it as a sleep monitor. I am supposed to keep a migraine log for my neurologist, on paper. For some reason, even though it only takes a minute to do that, I just don't like to do it and I usually forget. I can go to the app to fill out the paper one, so that's helpful. Try it for awhile and see if it's a good fit for you or not. It's free.
