  1. Better summary statistics for chronic migraine

    As someone with 24/7 constant migraine, average severity, number of migraines, and duration isn't helpful. I want to know the total number of hours at each severity level. I also want to track days in which my headache spikes to worse than normal at any time over the course of the day. For example, any day with disabling pain is important, even if it only lasts for 1 hour out of 12 hours of headache. Being able to customize summary statistics would be very helpful.

    • Input times as present

      Input times should be set at the present rather than when the migraine started. It's fine when I first create a migraine, but two days later when I take meds again, it's annoying to have to change the day, hour, and minute. Or if I get roped into watching a movie or going swimming and go to add it, it'd be nice if the time were closer to the present rather than always being the migraine start time.

      • Add additional symptoms

        Many of us also experience tinnitus, audio and olfactory hallucinations. Some also experience 'Alice in Wonderland' symptoms which are visual distortion.

        • Have smells as a trigger

          Have smells as a trigger. My migraines are triggered highly by smells.

          • I'm unable to do the prep for a challenge if I can't see the foods affected. Unlock the tips section!

            Under the "Prep" for each challenge, you're advised to familiarise yourself with the foods to avoid by looking in the "Tips" section. However the "tips" section is locked until you start the challenge! I can't really do that prep now can I? Especially with challenges regarding things like tannins I really need to know what I'm looking at committing to and maybe do so preparatory grocery shopping before jumping into the challenge. There is no benefit to locking any section of the challenge! Unlock it please!!

            • Tips to make migraine go away based on symptoms.

              It would be nice to get feedback on how to make headache/migraine go away based on the symptoms selected. May be a long shot, or too subjective per person. But every single time I get a migraine I have this habit of turning to Dr. Google to look up ANYTHING that will help the pain stop. Most of the time I get the same responses, but it's nice to find different feedback on solutions.

              I want to understand my migraines better, however once they arrive I want to know everything I can possibly to to help make it go away,…

              • List symptoms during migraines

                Be able to put a time to symptoms. An example. Nerve pain started on right at the beginning of migraine, but be able to track a seizure starting or numbness further in migraine to help neurologist

                • Allow for some past information to not heavily weigh on ones results and assistance on the app.

                  For instance, when I started using the app two years ago I was really good about logging everything, but then my nuerologist didn’t care about the reports and I figured out the patterns and didn’t need it. Now, I have a new nuerologist who is interested in the reports. It would be great if I could make the time that I didn’t do anything not weigh on my reports and skew my results.

                  • Notification when you take a certain amount of the same med each month to try to avoid rebound headaches

                    Would there be any way to have some type of notification pop up if you’ve taken a certain med for so many days in a month? I get rebounds from certain meds so this would help me avoid the medication related ones.

                    • Would be good add actions anytime.

                      It seems I can only input an action after I've started a migraine. Let's say I'm not having a migraine but i drank a little alcohol. Next day I get a headache, but I'd have to enter the activity after it has happened and guess the times. Better to log as things are happening.

                        • I love that it gives me a % estimated chance of migraine based on current data, but I wish it would tell me how it got that number!

                          I am still trying to find triggers, and I know that weather is one of them... However, I have had them at high barometric pressures, and not at the same pressures. What else about the weather is it tracking? (I would be interested in being able to click the current %, to see how it got that number.

                          Thank you for the awesome app!

                          • Migraine on daily check in

                            I miss that it no longer asks whether you've had a migraine on the daily check in. Sometimes if I get one early or while I'm at work I'll forget to log it and the question on the check in almost always prompted me to log it. Can we bring that back?

                            • Pain level at check in

                              The pain level needs to be entered at least once a day (check in) but also throughout the migraine. I know that after being in pain for more than 150 hours, the pain should be gone but that isn't always the case. We live our lives outside of medical research setting. Medical care isn't always available or a doctor will not help out of fear of the American government. I can't take a simple Tylenol or any other pain medication, over the counter or prescription, because of my doctors orders. He seems to believe that they will cause rebound migraines.…

                                  I'd like there to be a new challenge to see the effect of cutting out added sugars. I suspect this is a trigger for me and I think it would be a good challenge for a lot of people.

                                      • Just need to know how to reset without losing data

                                        My app is acting strangely this morning. First, it’s only 2 a.m. here and my prompt for today’s challenge report is already here (it’s always appeared the day following around noon). Second, it won’t let me log my challenge report for 3 days ago (yes, I’m a little behind.).The “done” button is gone. There’s a button that says”notification” + some special characters, and what look like ghost buttons in clear boxes, one asking for a ratiing, the other is hard to read coz all overlap each other.This is the kind of thing where I usually delete an app then download…

                                          I am starting an elimination diet to see what is triggering migraines. While I find it helpful you can select "tannin" and "caffeine" etc as a trigger in the app, I always have to look up the food separately to see if it falls in that category. I wish it could all be integrated in one option on the app
