Can New Smartphone Apps Help Migraine Sufferers?
Around 38 million Americans suffer from migraines, often brought on by triggers such as hormonal changes, lack of sleep, certain types of food or weather changes. But there is good news for those 38 million people – some relief may be here! Curelator Headache is a new app that can identify personal triggers and rank them by importance. It can also help by pinpointing behaviors that protect against an attack. David Dodick, director of headache medicine at Mayo Clinic, says apps like Curelator are more likely to benefit people whose migraines occur when several triggers stack on top of each other.
