I wrote a post today about how self-tracking can help migraines at the Quantified Self blog. It talks about research showing headache diaries to be effective in predicting and diagnosing migraine, shares a story of a migraineur who tracks herself, and calls for participants to join the CureTogether migraine study. Please read and share with any loved ones who suffer with migraine pain!
Another recent mention of migraine was by Josh Bernoff of Forrester Research at the recent HealthCamp Boston. One of his slides, shown below, suggests that migraine sufferers and people with chronic pain conditions are most likely to benefit from and to participate in online social networks (top right quadrant).
On the one hand, it’s great to see so much increasing attention on migraine and chronic pain conditions. On the other hand, there’s still a long way to go.
