1. Who should use N1-Headache?

How does N1-Headache work? How does N1-Headache work?

N1-Headache connects people with migraine to their clinicians through a mobile app and web-based dashboard. It requires you to log information about your headaches, migraine symptoms and medication use on days you have an attack, and track a range of factors (moods, weather, diet, etc.) on a daily basis that may influence your risk of attack. After you have recorded data for a minimum of 90 days, your results are processed, analyzed, and delivered as a set of three maps: Individual Trigger Map™, Individual Protector Map™ and No Association Map.™ (Click any of the features that are underlined to learn more.) The maps are incorporated within a Personal Analytical Report that you may print out as a PDF and share with your healthcare provider.

2. Visual Migraine Language™ (VML2)

What is VML? What is VML?

VML is a set of visual icons that represent more than 70 potential migraine attack risk factors and associated symptoms. N1-Headache developed VML to make your daily tracking quicker and easier. iOS users may click any of the VML icons within the app to learn more about them.

3. Daily Tracking & Reminder

4. Customizing Daily Factors

What are the Daily Factors? What are the Daily Factors?

These are the everyday things that may be associated with risk of a migraine attack. They are organized into groups of modules:
• Emotions
• Sleep
• Warning Signs(Premonitory Symptoms)
• Environmental
• Lifestyle habits
• Dietary
• Nicotine
• Recreational Drugs
• Travel
• Gender - specific factors
• Weather

5. Time-period Comparison

6. Medication Overuse Alert

7. Interpreting Individual Maps

What are the different types of maps? What are the different types of maps?

• Suspected Trigger Map™
• Trigger Map™
• Protector Map™
• No Association Map™
• Insufficient Data Map

N1 - Headache presents your results in a series of visual formats that resemble targets.Risk factors with the strongest association to migraine attacks appear closer to the center; weaker associations appear further away.

When will I get my maps? When will I get my maps?

Your Individual Trigger, Protector, No Association and Insufficient Data maps show the results of your personal analysis after a minimum of 90 days tracked data. While the Suspected Trigger Map data is not part of your formal analysis, you should compare your results to the risk factors you initially identified as suspected migraine attack triggers.

What are protectors? What are protectors?

Migraine protectors are factors associated with a decreased risk of migraine attack. Like migraine triggers, your migraine protectors are identified from your personal data analysis. The concept of protective factors has been pioneered by Curelator and is unique to N1-Headache.

What happens if I avoid factors? What happens if I avoid factors?

If you avoid certain factors, there may not be enough data to associate risk of migraine with them. Therefore, if you completely avoid something such as chocolate during your 90 day data collection period, it may fall into the category of “insufficient data” due to lack of exposure to that factor.

Why do I have many factors marked as “not enough data” - although I enter factors every day? Why do I have many factors marked as “not enough data” - although I enter factors every day?

Your analysis is based on how the day-to-day variations of exposure to factors may affect your migraine attacks.
For example, if you drink the same amount of coffee every single day, N1 - Headache will not be able to determine the association of coffee with your risk of migraine attacks.But, if you drink coffee very rarely, you may not have enough exposures to coffee for your analysis to determine whether coffee is associated with your attacks.

8. Understanding Your Personal Analytical Report

What is the benefit of my Personal Analytical Report? What is the benefit of my Personal Analytical Report?

It provides a summary of all of the information you have entered into the N1-Headache app, including: frequency, severity and duration of your headaches and migraine attacks, along with migraine-related disability (MIDAS/PedMIDAS scores), and medication use. It also incorporates all of your individual maps.
You and your healthcare provider can use the information in your report to see how your migraine outcomes are changing and your disease is progressing over time.The report could also be helpful for securing reimbursement from your insurance company by documenting your response to preventative medications such as Botox or a CGRP inhibitor.
