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? Use the most popular headache diary on the app store (over 180,000 downloads to date)!
"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 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 criteria specified by the International Headache Society 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.

Ratings and Reviews
I’ve been using this app for years. The reports exported in excel format are amazing. Sometimes the updates are a bit slow, but they always respond to questions right away.
Careful not to lose your data
Overall this has been a very convenient app, and has made a big difference for me in the consistency with which I record headach data. I would definately recommend it to anyone with chronic headaches. My only caveat is to be careful not to lose your data! The app started crashing on my phone after they had made some big overhauls ( not sure if the problem was the app or the phone). I then lost six months of data that I had meticulosly entered. I was only able to recover some of the data because I happened to have a back up of my phone on my computer from a month ago. Point being - you can't just count on the data being automatically backed up to iTunes. It's probably best to email it to yourself periodically. Learn from my mistakes! Oh, and I like some of their recent upgrades. I just wish that the triggers were more versatile - ie that you could add your own in the same way that you can add your own medications. Their lost definitely isn't exhaustive, and migraines are so particular to individuals and poorly understood that ot makes sense to allow people to track their own hypotheses.
Help your doctor help you
I recommend this app for headache sufferers. This app is intuitive and easy to use, and developed by a physician. All the components are there to help a physician manage their chronic headache patients. I love the ability to add a custom trigger to your list of headache triggers, or just choose your common triggers for your list. Users have asked for a graphical report instead of just a list report but I don't think the lack of graphs limits this app's helpfulness for physicians. Five out of five stars for this awesome app!
For those that prefer to try it before you buy it, the "iHeadache lite" version of this app is exactly like the paid version , however it only tracks two weeks of information. Plus, if you upgrade to the full paid app, you will lose your two weeks of data!
The only thing missing is a way to sync it online so you don't lose data if your phone gets lost...I hope that is coming.
