How accurate are individuals with migraine at determining their own triggers?
A study1 in 390 people who used N1-Headache for 90 days shows that memory-based identification of personal triggers (suspected triggers) is unreliable compared to daily, prospective data collection coupled with statistical analysis of potential trigger-attack associations, as we do using the N1-Headache digital platform. Overall, only 16% of suspected triggers were shown to be statistically associated with attack occurrence.
