Key Areas of the App

Recording and Tracking
More than a migraine journal, Migraine Buddy will help you quickly record and identify all aspects of an attack, including migraine triggers, symptoms, medications, frequency, duration, pain intensity, location, and other lifestyle factors so users can improve their migraine condition. It will also help you track the impact of migraine on your daily life.

Migraine Management and Support Programs
Migraine Buddy is the first to provide patients with Support Programs located within the app. Programs are designed to support the life of someone with migraine, no matter what stage of the journey they are at, and help reduce attacks. Programs include diets to follow to reduce migraine attacks, coaching, templates on how to talk to your doctor and neurologist, how to pack emergency kits for the ER and more.

Migraine Buddy provides an easy-to-read summary report for users to send to their doctor, employer, or insurance company, or simply for better personal understanding of their migraines. Reports are free and can be exported to use as you wish.
Reports cover:
- Migraine Impact Report (MIR) which summarizes the impact migraine has on your life, requested and preferred by many doctors
- Trigger reports
- Relief reports
- Medication reports and more

Fantastic app with a nice and simple UI

As someone who has suffered from migraines for my entire life I was always trying to find an effective way to track them and record details. However, I kept having trouble remembering and keeping everything organized. I love this app because it’s so easy to enter the info, but it also has a good amount of detail. It compiles the data and presents it to you in an interesting way that can help you get a new perspective on symptoms, triggers, and your body’s patterns. I especially like the sleep tracking part (it’s linked to my FitBit, but it can also link to an Apple Watch), as that is one of my main triggers, and having definitive information about my sleep schedule can really help me predict and prevent migraines. The resources are helpful and the chat forum is a wonderful place to discuss your experiences with other migraine sufferers, as well as to get advice or tips on how to manage your migraines.
My main issues with the app are mostly that there are occasionally typos, which can sometimes make it feel slightly less professional, and that the layout could probably be improved a little (it’s quite bland and sometimes things kinda blur together).
If I were to suggest anything I would suggest the ability to make a more in-depth profile and the option to do private messaging. I believe it would be quite helpful to be able to have one-on-one conversations with people you might have met through the forum.

Single most helpful tool in 15+years

As someone who’s struggled with chronic debilitating migraines for over 15 years and tried so so many different things without any success... I’d also tried many different tracking methods and finally decided that tracking wasn’t going to help, but hinder, as it caused too much focus on the migraines and I needed to focus on living. But this app has changed all of that!!! THANK YOU Migraine Buddy for creating something that helps me do both! For helping me easily, quickly and simply input data about my migraines, keep track, and keep living my life to the best of my ability. But ALSO, the oh so helpful tools, connection with the community, reports, weather (my biggest trigger has always been barometric pressure!! - and now for the first time EVER I have the ability to plan to the hour of when I can take my meds or know when I’m going to start going downhill just to know even if I can’t take one of my meds... it’s helps to know if I need to buck up or to go lay down if I can), ability to see patterns, etc... this app and its tools has been the single most helpful thing in the last decade for me of communicating with my doctors, identifying my auras, and figuring out what actually helps. Thank you!! All in a way that doesn’t take over my life and keep me fixated on my migraines - they are already present enough!

If you have migraines and are thinking about this app - GET IT!

Wonderful app that is always being made better!!

Love this free app!! Easy to navigate and record migraines. I have been using this app since April of 2017 and it has done wonders for me! It allows my doctors to see what I actually go thru, frequency, what meds work and dosages and duration of migraine. Lots of data can be entered which means lots of different results to be seen. They offer different ways to view the data to see if there is a pattern. My pain specialist was very intrigued by the printed report. Love that we can start an attack and then just leave it and go back to enter in the meds and steps used to try to stop the migraine. Can be personalized very easily so the reports show accurately what you go thru. The biggest benefit is that all of this is FREE! In a world where migraines are not understood, this app being free helps me to show all my doctors that I am serious in working for a treatment plan that works for me, plus there is no more guessing as to what meds to take and you can track when you took them last so you can make sure you are taking meds as prescribed by your doctor. It is a wonderful app and so happy they created it. One more tool to help us migraine warriors in the battle against this horrible disease!
