Headache duration

The headache duration is essential for diagnosis and treatment. Migraine attacks usually last 4-72 hours. Episodic tension-type headache has a spontaneous duration of 30 minutes up to 7 days. Cluster headaches last from 30 minutes to 3 hours.

To allow a statistical analysis of days per month, it is not possible to submit more than one headache entry per day in MigraineApp. If relevant, you should add a description in the “comment” box individually. This means you can always only enter one type of headache per day. This will be sufficient in most cases and allows clarity of the entries and analysis.
