iPhone App Helps Doctors Treat Headaches Better

in Health and Fitness (E)

[prMac.com] Louisville, Kentucky - Get Healthy Apps, LLC has announced the release of Headache Journal 1.0 for iOS. The app helps users track headaches and migraines, information that patients can share with doctors. Keeping a journal as the headaches occur will allow users and doctors to choose a better strategy for controlling headaches. Developed by Mike Sowell, a leading neurologist and headache specialist, it provides the capability to record the various features of headaches or migraines (duration, severity, location, preceding aura, associated symptoms and triggering factors), including the degree of disability, any medication taken and your response to medication.

Doctors need to know location, duration, recurrence, triggers, foods and medication undertaken to provide the best headache care to patients. The ability to track triggers and add personal notes to each entry makes the app perfect to analyze recurring headaches and treat them better.

The saved report is seen by the doctor. Headache Journal lite is a free personalized headache diary app which allows tracking headaches on the iphone, ipod touch or ipad.

In addition, one can connect to support services and chart a graph of headaches over a month, quarter or half year. This graph may then be sent via email to the doctor. There is a section for adding notes and customizing the list of medications taken.

"The idea of keeping a headache diary is a standard part of the medical care of patients with headache disorders. This app allows one to keep detailed information in real time to later present to their doctor, which will help optimize the management of their headaches," says Mike Sowell, MD, who has launched Headache Journal.
