In-depth reviews of the Headache Log app.

Clinical review

: Jeremy Steinberg, GP, FRNZCGP
Date of review: October 2017
Comments: This app is most useful for headache sufferers and their doctors, to track headache trends and features, helping the sufferer and doctor with diagnosis and treatment. It is simple and fast to log a headache and users are able to customise headache questions to an extent. However, the headache questions are limited, meaning some clinically important information (such as associated features, or effect on daily life) would have to be entered manually into the notes section (thereby potentially missing some such important information). Cannot export information without paying, limiting its usefulness. No information on migraine or headache. 
Safety concerns: Does not advise you to seek medical help if you enter in concerning headache features.
New Zealand relevance: Acetaminophen is called paracetamol in New Zealand.
