  1. Track changes in pain intensity, pain location, symptoms and pain type throughout the migraine

    Have a place to record whether your headache increased or decreased in intensity and if the pain location as well as symptoms changed through out the migraine. Also have a question to describe the type of pain eg, drilling, pounding etc. - my pain can change

      Hi everyone,

      Thank you for the constant feedback on this issue! I would like to ask a followup question to help us better understand and prioritize which aspect of this feature we should focus on.

      For those of you who see a doctor, does your doctor ask about changes in your migraines? Is your doctor more interested in changes in pain level, medication, pain type or symptom?

      For those of you who do not see a doctor, could you help me understand how documentation these changes in the migraine would help you?

      Please let me know at jenny@healint.com so I can help to communicate all your needs and concerns better to the team =)

        Dear all,

        We’re currently working on a new rating system for reliefs and medication scale so that you more accurate rate the effectiveness. The new scale will be: not sure, not helpful, somewhat helpful, helpful.

        Currently, we are also exploring the idea of introducing a medication timer within the app to prevent drug overdose.

        Would a medication timer be helpful for you? If no, why not? If yes, would you prefer to have it as a:
        1. Countdown timer to remind you to take your meds in X time
        2. Countup timer to let you know how much time has passed since your last dose

        Please let me know your thoughts at jenny@healint.com or reply this email. Thank you and have a migraine-free week ahead ^^

      • Add a food, water and doctor appointment tracker and write comments even when I don't have a migraine to figure out possible triggers

        a place to enter what you ate recently so that over time, you can see wether certain foods are triggers.For example, I know that alcohol triggers a migraine, so I don't drink. But what if chocolate is also a trigger and I just haven't made the connection yet?!
        Record daily notes to figure out triggers. A place to enter when I have a doctor appointment.

          • Give an option to track your daily medication ( Ex. Preventative medication) and other therapies without counting it as a migraine.

            It would be nice to be able to track my meds and make sure I am remembering to take them daily, and also to be able to tell if new medications are working. it would also be useful to track massage or acupuncture or other therapies to see how those affect migraines

            • Have a switch to darken screen when my eyes are particularly sensitive to light

              White/light backgrounds can hurt my eyes during my migraine so I'd like to be able to dim the background when this happens

              • add menstruation calendar

                Add the option to enter menstruation dates so you can see when "soon" is coming in relation to migraine intensity.

                • Allow prodrome and migraine "hangover" tracking and analyzing

                  it would be most useful to be able to enter prodrome start/end times and symptoms, as well as indicating whether or not a migraine " hangover " resulted from a headache and how long it lasted. I can experience prodrome without it becoming a migraine and there is no way to indicate it distinct from a migraine because the lowest pain level you allow is 1 not 0...it skewers the statistics when I have to enter a prodrome episode as a level 1 migraine instead if spy a migraine without pain. and the "hangover" aspect is important to track for…

                    With the recent updates we can now record the prodome and hangover in the daily notes.
                    this is ok for tracking.

                    We still have to work on making it nicely exportable in a print report and provide more analysis. but that’s a beginning, the most urgent being done, we will come back to it very soon.

                      To be sure that I understand here.
                      This is to add more choices to the menstrual screen, because we miss some cases.
                      To add:
                      - late periods
                      - ovulation
                      - pregnant
                      - breast-feeding

                      For the premenstrual symptoms.
                      Is it better to put it in the trigger screen or on the “period” screen? (it has an impact on the analysis of triggers in the report.
                      Would it make sense for you to put in the trigger screen:
                      - pre-menstrual insomnia
                      - pre-menstrual low mood
                      etc… ?
                      actually, is the objective to determine if those symptoms are triggers? or to help in isolated the pre-menstrual days?

                      Thank you!
                      Jenny

                        May I suggest to put an approximate time + putting in the notes “not sure about the end time”?

                        Why? simply because the application does statistics about the length and start of the migraine. For now, the user will still make less mistakes than the machine in “guessing” an approximate start or end time for the statistics.

                      • Detailed weather tracking

                        I'd love to get detailed information about how pollen/pollution/weather affect my migraines. It's not enough to track temperature or whether it's raining like other migraine+weather apps do, I need more complex analysis on things like rates of temperature/barometric pressure/humidity changes. Obviously I don't get migraines every time it's 95° or higher, so is sudden vs gradual humidity increase a trigger? High pollen count? Rapid temperature drops?

                        • give option to distinguish btwn nap and night sleep

                          I noticed the program combines any sleep in a day as being night sleep, which is misleading in trying to correlate sleep patterns to migraine frequency.

                            We did a first step by removing the sleep graph. We are preparing a new one outside the app first, and testing new components to get a better graph inside the app.

                          • connect with other Migraine Buddy users through the app to discuss migraine triggers, symptoms and treatment options etc,

                            It would be great to interact with other Migraine Buddy users through the app to discuss any remedies that may have worked for them especially if they have similar triggers or symptoms as mine.

                                  There are 4 phases to a migraine. This app does well for aura and pain but can you add data collection for the prodrome (before aura) and postdrome (after pain)?

                                  • An option to manually enter location for weather so I don't have to have location services turned on.

                                    I always keep my location services off, for both probably and battery preservation. I'd love to be able to put in my zip code or something and have the app gather weather information that way instead of forcing me to turn on location services.

                                    • Add Ability to Set Default Location for Pressure buddy and current weather

                                      Thank you for adding the two day pressure buddy graph and the current weather box. As many users have noted, lots of people have location services normally turned off to save battery. Weather apps often let you either use location services to locate you or manually enter locations and then save them. When recording a migraine right now Migraine Buddy allows you to manually enter the location. Would it be possible to extend this feature to the Pressure Buddy and Current Weather boxes. It would be great if there could be in settings or somewhere something along the lines of…

                                        I love the new feature that has been added for local migraine buddy app people in "my town". The one thing I do not like is that there has to be 150 people in my town using the app in order to see how many using the app have a headache. I think as long as there are 2 or more people it should show. Example... there are 9 migraine buddy app users in my town and I have a headache as of a few hrs ago, it would be nice to be able to see if I am the…

                                          Hi Sara and all,
                                          Thank you for the feedback! The team is starting to work on changing the limit on the local buddies feature so it can still be useful to users like you who live in a small area. :)

                                        • Add ability to print and/or export sleep records along with migraine records

                                          It is great that the app tracks sleep and the new sleep records page is great, but it would be even better if it was possible to print out sleep records for a period of time (say a month) and/or be able to export the data to a spreadsheet format (excel preferably). One possible format would be to have the following as columns: date, whether had a migraine or not, migraine intensity, start time of migraine, time for falling asleep, wake up time, and time slept. This way users could easily see for example at what point sleep or lack…
