Why should patients track their migraines with Migraine Buddy?
It may take time for doctors to work out the best treatment for patients, who may need to try several types of medications before identifying the most effective one. Tracking migraine through a diary or journal is one way to do it.
“Not only can it help keep track on what’s going on with your disease, but it is also one of the best ways to provide information to the doctor, such as onset of headaches and other associated symptoms, frequency, location of pain,” says Dr Ong.
“Moreover, patients may take charge of their headaches by learning to avoid known trigger factors and treating them early, based on warning symptoms before the headache starts.”
