For example, respected migraine researcher, Professor Hartmut Göbel, Kiel Migraine and Headache Centre, Kiel, Germany, and his team and collaborators recently developed and released Migraine App to help sufferers better manage their migraines on a day-to-day basis.

Professor Hartmut Göbel states that 900,000 migraine attacks arise daily in Germany including 100,000 migraines so severe that they render sufferers bedridden in dark, quiet rooms. There are more than 360 different types of headaches and migraines and this is the third most common disease affecting the nervous system after dementia and stroke. Migraines and headaches affect every second adult worldwide, with costs in Europe exceeding 43.5 Billion Euros annually.
Migraine App encourages patients to record triggers, symptoms and treatments of migraines and headaches via a Migraine Calendar and other screens. This App also helps users find migraine and headache experts in their area as well as fellow sufferers. Time and space prevents me from listing all the great features of this App and I will conclude by encouraging all migraine and headache sufferers to download Migraine App.
Being free of charge, there is nothing to lose … except maybe a migraine! Furthermore, the privacy of patient information on Migraine App is guaranteed as the data is only stored on the patient’s own device. Being available in English and German, it is compatible with iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and Apple Watch while an Android version is also available.
Whilst a great App, wouldn’t it be great if one day there is an App available that could zap pain away altogether??
