What does the app do?

Migraine Xplained provides information about migraines through storytelling. Using comic-style, colourful graphics, you can learn about why migraines occur, including identifying triggers. It includes My Migraine, a diary feature to record migraine severity, frequency, possible triggers and notes, so you can pick up trends. You can share this information with others.
