It’s important to be organized and informed about your migraine attacks and how they impact your life. Tracking this information in a headache diary and then sharing the details with your physician will help ensure that you and your healthcare provider can put together an effective treatment plan. Note when the migraine starts, when it stops, where the pain is, what you’ve eaten and what you were doing at the time it began. Also, record which medications you took to ease the pain and how well they worked. Tracking your migraine frequency in your diary can help identify potential migraine triggers and the best course of action to help treat and prevent migraine attacks in the future.
