Do you have a migraine diary? I mean the kind where you record your pain level, food for the day, meds etc., all in an effort to figure out your migraine triggers. Many episodic migraineurs have successfully narrowed down their triggers using this method. After which, they avoid them like the plague to keep their migraines at bay. I’m sure they sneak a little cheat from time to time.
But does this method work for chronic migraineurs? What’s your opinion?
I’d really like to know because I FINALLY started mine. My husband has literally been on me for YEARS to start and maintain one. I always start but get lazy and stop. I just wonder how effective it is for someone who lives 80% of their life with a migraine.
I know that this step is usually one that doctors recommend. Every time I start seeing a new neurologist, they ask to see it and/or encourage me to start one. But please, chronic migraineurs out there, what’s your story when it comes to migraine diaries? What type do you use?
As you can see from my pic, I’ve gone the “old school” route – an actual journal. Why? I’ve tried a number of apps for android and IOS but they always seem to lack something. So I’ve decided to stick with writing things down.
I look forward to thoughts, advice…
