Abstract

In this paper, we describe how we used a smartphone app to collect migraine data. The users log their migraine details in the app with the purpose of discovering their migraine triggers. We analyze details of over half a million migraines and we report some novel findings that traditional studies missed because of their rigid clinical setting. We report the most common triggers, symptoms, relief methods, onset locations and drug combination outcomes.
