For the past few weeks I’ve been testing out the Excedrin® Migraine My Migraine Triggers ™ app. The app is available for free on iTunes and allows migraine sufferers to track the causes of their migraines and send detailed reports to doctors, enabling more effective communication and diagnosis. When you load the app you can insert basic information like where your pain is and what you ate during the day. I’ll often found if I haven’t had enough water or shipped a meal or two that my migraines become much worse. Stress and anxiety are also big factors. I also know environmental changes will also set off a migraine.
For my doctor I can also communicate what works. Often a simple Excedrin® Migraine, glass of water and a nap will do it. Other times I just need a break form whatever I am doing. It’s having those moments to slow down and take a break that help my migraines the most.
After some time I can gather all this information form the app and share it with my doctor. It will also tell me what is causing my triggers the most so I can understand what is causing my headaches so I can make changes. It’s often just knowing what is causing the problem that can help fix it. If not every time at least I’m better understanding my health. The app also helps track what makes your migraines better and shows what’s working for you so you can show your doctor what is and is not working for you. It’s a better way to understand my overall health.
I really do use products like Excedrin® Migraine and find it to be the most helpful when my migraines are at their worst. I also have found that the Excedrin® Migraine My Migraine Triggers ™ app is helping me to find what works for me so if you get migraines you know how it feels. Track your symptoms and remedies with the new app.
