Wireless Headache Intervention Study - Track your pain with an electronic diary for your iPhone

Want to learn more about your headaches? Track your pain with an electronic diary for your iPhone!

Keeping a headache diary is often recommended by healthcare providers if you are living with recurrent headaches. It helps you track precise information about the headache you are experiencing, allows you to identify what triggers your headache, informs you what may help to alleviate your pain or made it worse, and gauge how much headaches impact your life. This information may help you to manage your headaches better.

To make it easier to keep a diary, a research team lead by Drs. Patrick McGrath and Anna Huguet at the IWK Health Centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada is developing an electronic headache diary for the iPhone. To learn more about this diary, read more details about the application. This application is not providing treatment and is not a substitute for your current medical treatment.
