Record a Headache
What information does MigrnX™ gather regarding my headache?
By simply recording an episode, MigrnX™ system automatically gathers your location, the current time, light frequency and intensity, weather, ambient noise, and barometric pressure.* In addition, it can track severity of pain and medication through manual entry.
*This information may not be available on some phones and operating systems.
Can I turn off GPS and the sound sensors?
Yes. To turn off the sensors go under your profile and click Settings. Toggle the switch to turn the sensors off or on.
My phone is not recording the weather.
Firstly, ensure that your sensors are turned on: Under your profile, click on settings and toggle the sensors on. Still having problems? Poor connection may result in the inability to record weather. Lastly, some phones and operating systems may not record the weather or barometric pressure. If you have a question about your phone specifically, send us an email at MigrnX@sensorrx.io.
What is the difference between Weather and Environmental sensors?
Weather is calculated using your GPS location and estimates the temperature, humidity, and pressure from your local weather station. Environmental Sensors record the ambient air pressure in the air surrounding you.

Click on the “Migraine Record” tab at the bottom of the page. Select the headache you wish to edit, click “Edit” on the top right hand corner and select the field you wish to change. Once finished, click done.
How do I record a headache that lasts for multiple days?
If a headache lasts for more than one day, you can input the start and end times and MigrnX™ System will automatically account for each headache day. You also have the option to record a new headache each day. Either way, the number of migraine days will be accounted for.
My pain level changes over the course of my headache, how do I record that?
At this time, we do not have the ability to show a change in pain level. We suggest that you select your highest pain level in your headache record. You have the option to record separate headaches to indicate a change in pain level, or you can explain the changes in the notes section of your headache record.
