Life Changer 5/5
I have suffered with migraines for 7 years. I have seen many doctors, therapists, and pain consultants, trying to get ahold of the problem. I finally have tangible information to give my doctors, thanks to Migraine Buddy. It allows me to track, record, and learn from my migraines. I now know there is a community out there going through the same thing. I will be a life long user of Migraine Buddy! Thank you!
Love using this migraine recording app 5/5
It’s easy to use. I’m able to go back and record things later when I’m hurting too bad at the time. I was doing all of this on pen and paper and hoping I didn’t forget anything. I can’t wait to have it in use for an entire quarter to see how it records trends. Thanks so much!!!!!
Even though I just got the app today, I’m in love with how easy this app to Navigate.
Very Nice App! 5/5
Very well detailed. Has everything I would want in an app to keep track of my migraines. Sometimes it may be a bit much, as with almost daily migraines, I don’t always have the time for all of it. So, I just use the parts of it that suit me. I do like the fact that I can also record my sleep pattern. And that I can send the records to my doctor... that’s really cool. It’s all very easy to use too. Thank you for a great tool!
Today is my first day trying this app. I’ve tried others that were a chore, and wanted to charge for everything. This is easy to use and I love that you can send the information to your doctor.
Really amazing 5/5
By Little bulb
Helps me keep track of migraines and sleep. I love the fact the I can get a report, which, showing how often I get a migraine in a month, or any amount of days. It is a great tool to show your doctor. In fact my neurologist likes it so much she started to recommend it to her patients.
The app also has information on conferences, research studies, to participate in as well as a social net work, to chat with others that are suffering
Can't live without it! 5/5
Coming from a chronic severe migraine sufferer, this is a MUST! This app takes excellent stats and records of every symptom with ease. It also makes sending all records to doctors a breeze, which has also helped me see patterns in my migraines like when they usually occur, duration, the air pressure, etc.
Must have App if you have Migraines!! 5/5
This app is essential for tracking Migraine details!
~It can help you see trends in triggers, sleep and weather that you didn't know existed and potential symptoms alerting you that a migraine is coming.
~ Result reports can be sent to your healthcare provider, which is essential to aide in treatment planning, evaluation of current treatment, and need for advanced preventative options (i.e. Botox)
Helpful app 5/5
I have been using the Migraine Buddy app for almost a year and I have learned about my personal migraine from it. My doctor has looked at my records from the app at my appointments and I have the app on my phone as well as my tablet so I can update easily.
Hurray for this development team. 5/5
Ive been in IT since mid 70s and this is one of the most insightful apps I have ever seen. I opened it up in mid migraine and love the dark screen and zillions of factors. I needed another trigger that wasn't on screen. Typed it in and voila. Don’t usually have migraines over 24 hours, but here I am still tracking it 28+ hours later. I keep thinking there is something else missing, but I’m sure when I figure it out, I’ll go back and find it.
Just got a thought. Do the list of triggers change with location? Like at work, Im more likely to have a scent based trigger than at home. Idk if this is practical. It just popped out of my head (like i wish this migraine would do).
Can we have a cool dashboard for the buddy content? We need to know of any weather occurrences that may effect a portion of us. There are locations in the state that can send major odor clouds here at times. Like Stuttgart, which is rice capital and several places that convert animal fats for soap.
Keep up the great work. Let me know if you need any testers. I have a built in understanding of what user types need in an app since I started tutoring in 4th grade and continue as a tier supporter at work. I also love breaking apps and can then give detailed accounting of what happened as part of the overall use of the app since I have developed content myself over time.
Anything I can do (as well as, of course, purchasing the reports) to support the geniuses who developed this intuitive life saver. I will let you know at the time, if i come up with any new report types.
By The Serenity Seeker
I love this app. Keeps all information in one place. I was going to write down everything in a log but luckily found this app in time. To see triggers and pain scale for each attack is so helpful.
Love it! 5/5
So glad I came across migraine buddy. It has made tracking my migraines so much easier.
MB HELPED ME FIGHT MY INS CO 5/5
-I’ve been been using MB since June 2016. The developers continue to seek member feedback and make changes based on those recommendations.
-Additionally, I got locked out of the app due to a technical glitch and although it took 2 weeks to get back in, the customer service was awesome!
-When my insurance company denied my treatment request it was the detailed MB reports that caused them to approve my treatment! They even said MB reports are “a medically acceptable form of patient documentation”.
-I rarely endorse anything but this app and its developers are awesome!
Migraine sufferers, this is the app you want 5/5
By Ysa K
I’m a high school student/athlete and I suffer from chronic migraines, and I have no idea what causes them. They affect my sports and school work, and they hurt so much I can’t do anything for myself once they start. This tracker is really helpful, and I can keep track of symptoms without forcing myself to remember them. It’s one of the most helpful migraine apps I’ve ever had, and I’ll recommend it to anyone who has the same problems as I do. It’s quick, doesn’t take too much work, and helpful.
Don't think just download. 5/5
We all have migraines and need a little help. This is the app that will make it easier to track, document, and recognize patterns. Intuitive menus and easy to understand functions make this app heads above the rest. Now if it would just make the pain go away it would be perfect!
Best Migraine Tracker! 5/5
This app is insanely detailed!!! I love how not only it keeps a log, but it puts up an overall of what your migraines look like for you. Wow!! I will never switch to anything else! I just wish there was more networking options for “friending” and chatting with other people.
Excellent quality 5/5
By Alicarmet be
Good questions that the app frequently asks are absolutely helpful with monitoring and figuring out triggers to my migraines. Particularly I will often forget to add info- but this app keeps me on track with the best data tracking.
User-friendly and useful 5/5
This app is intuitive and creates a great record of data with which to notice one's headache patterns. It's hard to imagine a better app for that purpose.
So far so great! 5/5
I just started using this app and I’m already in love with it! When I have a migraine/headache it’s hard to record everything about it but this app is making it so much easier. It really helps me keep track of the specific things about each headache/migraine!
I've never thought of recoding my migraines before. This makes it so easy to do so! But also has put into perspective how frequent they are.
4.5 Stars 4/5
It’s a great app that needs a couple of better features. I want to be able to record changes in severity over time, because my headaches sometimes last for several days. Either I can’t find it, which speaks to person-oriented design, or it isn’t there.
Very helpful 5/5
Has helped me identify trends and quantify the number of migraines I’m having. Thanks!
Easier to read reports 4/5
Reports that are easy to read and more specific to the topic I want to track
This app is really helpful for when my doctor asks about attacks and when I had them, how often, and any possible trends. It's really good for when you've first been diagnosed with migraines!
Best migraine tracking app 5/5
This is the best app! Easy to use, great interface, and gets all the information you need to log your migraines. Also, when I had issues logging in to my account I got personalized emails from their support who helped me until my issue was resolved. I wasn't expecting such outstanding customer service. Highly recommend this app!!!
Awesome in theory 1/5
I am a chronic migraine sufferer. Three times it has kicked me out like I was never a user and I lost all my tracking. I was counting on it to help info I share with the neurologist.
This is the one you want. 5/5
I haven’t been back to my neurologist since starting to use this app, but I am looking forward to having a lot more trends to share. You know, all that info they are expecting from a time your brain is fuzziest & lack of quality sleep has temporarily consumed your short-term memory. The screens are customizable, can add to during your changing attack, or an area can be skipped and returned to later if you just don’t have enough focus time left to do it right that instant. The fact that the screens are DARK make recording possible. Somebody with migraines finally developed a useful migraine app! Love the migraine buddy option as well. It updates my husband of a new migraine without me having to do anything extra (like opening up a bright phone/text screen). I haven’t utilized the community aspect of this app, but it is helpful to see the # of people in your area also suffering that day (weather/allergen interaction). The reports are looking promising so far. Lots more but these are the features I’m impressed with most thus far.
Time of meds is essential 4/5
I really like this app but I gave it only 4 stars because it is extra work to enter when you take meds. This should be integrated. It's important to not take meds too often so it seems like this info shouldn't be buried in the notes.
Excellent Tool! 5/5
This will really help you make decisions based on data; I’ve been using it for nearly two years. Great!!!
Love this app 5/5
I love being able to keep track of my migraines and find triggers that cause certain types of attacks. It's also helpful for showing your doctor patterns.
Migraine buddy helps 5/5
By DR CISV
Great tracking app that allows me to give my doctor accurate info on my migraines. Helps me decipher triggers and manage treatment. Very helpful.
Great App 5/5
This app helps me record my attacks easily by asking the correct questions when I’m least likely to know what to write down. It’s been a great help in understanding when my migraines hit.
Easy to use - compiles your data for you! 5/5
Love the fact you dont have to input all data at the time you begin a headache - it’s just too much sometimes. The ability to add/modify symptoms, triggers, etc is a real blessing.
I have a wish for the developers wishlist Tree - please allow us to upload person profile pictures - you already have an avatar in the place the photo could go!
Thanks for this awesome app!!!
Very thorough 5/5
I started using this app to be better prepared for doctor appointments. It tracks your headaches and sleeping patterns. It's very thorough with its questions. And it's all free!! Which is the best. Highly recommended to anyone with headaches.
Great App! 5/5
This app is very easy to use and allows you to keep a comprehensive record of the circumstances surrounding the migraine.
Privacy Issue 1/5
The only way to use the app is to create an external account. No way to save private data locally.
Response to developer: Creating an external account was never required in your earlier version. Are you mining or sharing the data on your servers? As a sufferer of cluster headaches, this app has become useless now. You should allow for local storage option (or iCloud). My data is more secure on my iPhone than it is on someone else’s servers.
Migraine support!! 5/5
I have suffered from migraines for 35+ years. This is a great app for understanding patterns better than keeping a journal. It can help see patterns, provide language for a diverse range of pain, and identify triggers in a more comprehensive manner than any other method I have found.
The only thing This app doesn’t have is a “repeat” or “copy headache” button for those people who get the same type of headache frequently.
Love This Migraine Tool! 5/5
I began using migraine buddy 1 year ago. It’s so nice to record your attack’s in detail. Being able to see how many people in your area are suffering as well, is a comfort in knowing you’re not alone. My doctor uses the app as a tool in my health care routine.
Just ok 2/5
The app is ok. It’s fine for the initial input of migraine. It has a lot of information for the onset that is recorded. However, my migraines last several hours to days, and any updating must be done in notes section. For example when I repeat my medication or add a med, or if symptoms change or pain level worsens or improves all this information needs to be put into the notes section verse the easy click section that is provided with first episode. For those of us with severe migraines being on the phone/computer is very difficult. Thus, all the writing in the note section just isn’t very conducive to recording a migraine that debilitating.
So far I love this!! 5/5
Only been a few days but I love this app! Super easy to use! I’ve been getting more migraines lately, and this is the perfect tool to track them! Thank you for creating this!!!
Easy to use 5/5
I have tried other apps and been frustrated with them to the point of quitting keeping records. I’m thrilled to have an app that gives not only lists but also large images for when my brain is hurting so badly I can’t concentrate or think in words. I can record just a few things like pain level and the symptoms, then go back later when I’m feeling well enough to add details like possible triggers, meds and complementary treatments used, notes, and more. The app has also been a tool to remind me of things I could try to help relieve my symptoms. This will be an invaluable tool in discussing my condition with doctors. I can even email reports. The detail in this app is marvelous. Thank you for providing a tool that real people can use!
I love this app, and so does my neurologist! 5/5
I’ve been using Migraine Buddy for close to a year now and it has been a HUGE help. I see my neurologist every 3 months and am able to print out the entire list of my migraines-symptoms, aura, meds, non-med relief, how much it affected my day (ie missed work)... which meds worked etc. I record every migraine I have and am able to see in b&w the patterns! This way I can work w my neurologist and see what is working and what maybe needs more work. It really has been a life changing app. I recommend it to everyone I know who has migraines! Oh my gosh and it’s FREE! It’s just a huge help. So thankful I found this app!
So convenient! 5/5
I wish I knew about this app sooner!! Having 14+ migraines a month it’s hard to remember everything between neurologist appointments. Now I have everything in one place, the frequency, triggers, what meds I took, even what the weather was like. This app reminds me about factors I sometimes don’t consider. It’s so amazing, and I’m really positive this will help bring relief to my life. Thank you so much!
Very useful tool for documentation of migraines 5/5
By Sndee of Illinois
Migraine buddy I found to be a very useful & only tool for printing out the reports for my doctor. It beats trying to verbalize every headache, what was the trigger, ... and the note section is a plus!
The buddy chat rooms are great to learn what other people have tried or are experiencing, what has worked for them or what hadn’t. The best is knowing us migraine suffers are not alone!
By Pretty Black Rose
So far it works good for me very helpful
Wonderful App! 5/5
I survived a traumatic brain injury from a car accident. I have frequent headaches/migraines from that. I’ve had many variations of headaches and this app works well with tracking them. My short term memory is nonexistent and having this app is such a blessing!
Helpful may even be preventing Migraines 5/5
Very easy to use and very effective. Tracking migraine symptoms as well as IBS issues. By learning triggers I am avoiding some migraines! I think it says a lot that every doctor or physical therapist I have mentioned this app to already knows about it!!
Great app 5/5
I started using it about 18 months ago. I like tracking my sleep and entering notes. It shows a pattern of migraines that I discussed with my doctor. Now I’m trying a new preventative medication.
Lifesaver App! 5/5
This app is a Godsend! I was not doing well at writing down my migraine and headache information at all. Now I not only have when I have a headache, but I have all of the DETAILED information about it. Having the outside pressure is awesome because it plays a central part of the pressure in my head. I only wish I could have been using this app sooner! Thank you so much for this wonderful tool!
