Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Do you suffer from recurring headaches? Maybe you’ve tried countless things to relieve your pain. Wouldn’t it help you to keep track of your headaches, disability, medications taken, and triggers as you have your headaches?
"Loved the app and the new update makes tracking the migraines even better. Being able to note the possible triggers and then add my own notes for each headache is a big plus. Definitely worth the $$"
"I liked the app before, but now it is perfect. My doctor loves the reports and now he is even telling his patients to get it. The triggers and notes work great. Thanks for making this app."
When you see the doctor he needs information about your headaches to help you but you’re stumped by the questions that need answering.
• How many headaches you are having?
• How disabling are they?
• What medications are you trying?
• Are your headache preventatives working?
• Are there any triggers you can identify?
When you’re enduring a headache, keeping track of which medications you have taken, foods that might have triggered an attack or charting the time you are disabled is more than you feel up to. Yet, giving your physician the correct data about your headaches is essential to getting the best headache care.
Luckily, there’s help for you here. iHeadache has everything you need to track your headache symptoms, disability, triggers and medications in a pain-free way. With iHeadache, your iPhone or iPod Touch becomes a headache diary that’s going to help you and your doctor diagnose and treat your pain.
iHeadache was developed by neurologist, researcher and headache specialist, Dr. Brian D. Loftus. Who better than a specialist to create the most accurate and important headache tracking tool available?
One of the unique features of iHeadache is that it can tell you the type of headache you’re having by capturing and analyzing real time information. The app uses the International Headache Society Criteria (IHS Criteria) to classify your headache as a migraine, probable migraine, tension headache or unclassified headache. This application is like having a doctor in your device.
What kind of information does iHeadache track, record and analyze?
• Duration and severity
• Disability and impact
• Medication and usage
• Number of headaches
• Headache triggers
The app is flexible, allowing you to create custom triggers and medications, as well as enter notes about each headache. iHeadache is the perfect tool for gathering everything you need to know in one convenient place. You can even generate reports to share with your physician. Break down the information into 7, 28 or 30 days, or by specific months to show:
• The types of headaches you have
• The number of headaches during a specified period of time
• Medications and dosages
• The length of time you are completely and partially disabled
• Your MIDAS (Migraine Disability Assessment Scale) score
• The sum of your headache triggers
The information and analysis units in iHeadache have been designed to help you and your doctor design an informed, optimized treatment plan. The report is specifically formatted so your physician can quickly analyze the data about your headaches. You can even choose to export your diary to a CSV file that can be opened in Excel, Numbers or other spreadsheet applications.

What's New in Version 1.45
The "Headache Note" field is larger and user can enter a longer note. There is also a new option for entering your symptoms. The user can now copy their symptoms from their prior headache. Lastly, we squashed a few bugs.
Good so far…
After looking through about four to five headache/migraine diary apps, I finally settled on this one, because this app seemed better connected with the actual medical community that understands headaches. From reading many other reviews, I saw that doctors actually recommended this using one.
Now that I own it, here are some pain points I have with this app:
-Terrible user interface (probably the most confusing app I own)… there's even a (?) question button meant to bring up a help screen for each page… which actually appears in front of other buttons! … also the (cancel) button is the only way to "go back" when usually, "cancel" means, "disregard this command".
-The paid version has a "NO ADS" banner on it, like the icon of a free app (totally lame).
-You can only set up to five custom triggers (why shouldn't you be able to set as many as you want?)
All that to say, it's not pretty, but it gets the job done. Still though, I'm not really looking forward to using it when I have a headache, that's for sure.
Great App with Necessary Functions
This app is great... it let's me track headache times, symptoms and medicines. If you suffer from migraines this app will help you keep better track of the amount and type of headaches you're having. It's great to email to the doctor (and print a copy for your own file) so you have excellent records.
One thing I would like them to add is the ability to add items in the Notes on a day you DON'T have a headache. When you start a new preventative therapy, or have a doctor's appt and you change medicines, it would be nice to note it in the same calendar... not on a separate one you have to integrate into iHeadache.
One of my best & most used Apps
In general I think this is a great app, a little on expensive side, but i'm glad I bought it, it's been very useful!! It could use some updates tho, ya know? I suffer 24/7, for over 20yrs now, from headache & Migraines. My problem is, my daily headaches start out moderate ish but by end of day they are different degrees of severe. Is there anyway you can tweak this app so we can enter a.m & p.m symptoms, this would help in better tracking my daily headaches. That would be awesome. :-)
