Summary

Headache diary that allows the number of headaches, their duration and severity, the degree of disability and impact, medication and usage, symptoms, and triggers to all be tracked. Classifies headaches according to criteria expressed by a UK-based medical professionals' organisation, the International Headache Society, as a migraine, probable migraine, tension headache or unclassified headache. Information can be broken down by seven-, 28-, or 30-day slots. Can generate reports to share with a doctor (the information and analysis units have been designed to help the user’s doctor design a treatment plan). Free ‘Lite’ version only retains data for 2 weeks, and also contains advertisements. (One of the three highest-scoring headache apps assessed in Huguet; Hundert; McGrath; Stinson; and Wheaton, ‘Commercially-available mobile-phone headache diary apps: a systematic review’, JMIR Mhealth and Uhealth, Aug 19th 2014; 2(3): e36.)

Reviewer: Head Wise, National Headache Foundation (NHF), USA
Review: “Headache diaries are one of the best tools to support patients and healthcare providers in staying on top of the headache disorder. But for many people, keeping track of the incredible panoply of triggers that can set off a headache is a big stressor (and yet another headache trigger). If you need a way to keep a detailed history of your headache patterns and treatments, look no farther than your mobile phone. It’s easier than ever to maintain your essential headache information and generate detailed reports for health care providers. Pros of ‘iheadache’: Allows you to track the amount of time you were disabled, or partially disabled. Gives you a migraine disability assessment (MIDAS) score. Cons of ‘iheadache’: Can’t customise triggers. Somewhat basic features. Pop-up ads in the free version.”
