Including the day, time and duration

Tracking your migraines can better prepare you to prevent or treat these often-debilitating headaches.

The Womenshealth.gov website suggests what to log in a headache diary:

  -The date, time and duration of your migraine.
  -What you were doing and where you were when the migraine began.
  -Anything you drank or ate within 24 hours of the migraine.
  -If you are a woman, the duration of your menstrual period.
