Bearable Review & Testimonial

Migraine tracking works, here's the proof

Robyn, Bearable member

“Doctors had told me back in 2005 to “go away” because “there’s nothing I can do for you – as I’m allergic to most pain medication.

In 2010, my husband and I decided to sell up and travel the country. The biggest drawback is that I still need to see Doctors from time to time. Trying to explain my symptoms and condition was a long drawn out affair.

It’s amazing how much easier it is to talk to doctors when you have a graph and background at your fingertips. But not only did it help them but it has helped me to no end, just working out what helps.

Bearable is a big part of my daily morning ritual accompanying my coffee and when my family ask “how are you today mum?” I hand them my tablet.”

Created by people with chronic Migraine

James, founder & CEO

Having suffered with chronic migraines since 2018, I know all too well the frustration of coming out of an appointment with my doctor or therapist knowing that I hadn’t been able to give them a complete picture of my migraine symptoms.

Often these interactions can lead to no diagnosis, a very tentative diagnosis, or at worst, a misdiagnosis. From personal experience, this sets you off a wild goose chase. You go from consultant to consultant in search of answer and spend hours on Dr. Google.

In the end, I was sick and tired of feeling sick and tired. I started tracking my mood, symptoms and other daily factors, in the hope that it would help me to understand, and feel more in control of, my health. This is how the idea for the Bearable app was born. 

Since 2020, Bearable has helped me to better understand and manage my migraine symptoms as well has helping me to improve how I communicate with my medical team.

Today, my mission is to give all patients the power to take control of their health and feel like themselves again.

Free migraine symptom worksheet

Free Migraine tracker worksheet

Downloadable + printable PDF

Because our mission is to help people, we try to create as many free resources as possible. Whilst the Bearable app can be used for free, we understand that some people – especially people living with migraine – may not want to use a screen.

Our free migraine tracker worksheet helps you to track…

    1. The frequency of your migraine symptoms
    2. Your migraine pain levels
    3. Your migraine treatments and self-management habits
    4. The effects + side-effects of migraine treatments


Yes, Bearable is a freemium app and our subscription is optional.

With Bearable, you can track unlimited migraine symptoms, treatments, medications, and triggers for free. You can also identify changes in your migraine symptoms using weekly reports, timelines, calendars, and charts – all included in the free version of the Bearable app.

Bearable was designed so that people whose disposable income is affected by their migraines can still track and manage their health using the app for free. In fact, we’ve recently launched a sponsorship program that gifts free subscriptions to members of the Bearable community every month.

When you first sign-in to Bearable, you’ll be asked to pick the factors that you feel are most effecting your Migraine. Then, over the course of the following week – and along with your symptom severity – you’ll track the days when these factors occur.

Once you’ve collected approximately 7 days of Migraine symptom and Migraine factor data, we’ll show you correlations between your factors and changes in Migraine symptom severity.

Then, once you’ve collected more Migraine data – we recommend at least 30 days – you’ll be able to determine which factors might be negatively impacting your Migraine. At this point, most Bearable users then use this data to:

    1. Speak with a Doctor about any new Migraine triggers they’ve identified.
    2. Begin making lifestyle changes to avoid newly identified Migraine triggers.

It’s also possible to create more granular, custom factors and these can help you to get a more detailed understanding of your Migraine triggers. For example, rather than tracking ‘Dairy’ you might begin to track ‘Cheese’, ‘Milk’, and ‘Eggs’.

Ultimately, Bearable gives you the tools to collect data about your Migraine triggers, so that you can better understand and manage your Migraines over time.

Many members of the Bearable community have told us that their main aim is to simply track Migraine Symptoms over time. The main reasons for this are:

    1. It makes it easier spot early warning signs for Migraine symptom flare ups.
    2. It helps to give them perspective on the frequency and severity of their Migraine.
    3. The act of logging Migraine symptoms gives them a sense of control.
    4. It helps them to stay accountable for managing their Migraine symptoms.

Yes, one of the primary reasons we created Bearable was to make communication with your Doctor, Therapist, and Medical team easier.

Whilst it’s possible to export all of your Migraine data in .csv format, we’ve also heard from members of the Bearable community that they:

    1. Use the share button on certain reports to send doctors a specific Migraine report e.g. to share correlations from the Effect on Migraines report.

    2. Screen grab Migraine reports that don’t currently have a share button e.g. to share Migraine symptom trends from the Comparison graph or Timeline screen.

    3. Simply use the app during an appointment to answer questions on the spot. For example, by using the Timeline & Calendar screens to quickly lookup Migraine symptom frequency and severity for specific dates.

There are a number of different ways to use Bearable and each of them can help you to manage your Migraine in different ways.

    1. By helping you to identify Migraine triggers, Bearable can help you to make lifestyle choices and changes to avoid or reduce exposure to these triggers.

    2. Bearable can help you to identify early warning signs of a Migraine flare up, so that you’re able to adjust your plans before your symptoms become more severe.

    3. Bearable helps you to collect detailed Migraine symptom data for you to share with your medical team and this can aid with obtaining a diagnosis or treatment.

    4. By helping you to understand the positive and negative effects of treatments, self-management, and/or medications on your Migraine symptoms. Bearable can help you to make better decisions about how you manage your Migraines.

    5. Bearable’s Reminders, Goals, and Other Factor features can help you to stay accountable for healthy habits, self-management, and Migraine medication adherence.

Over 90% of Bearable members report that the app helps them to understand their symptoms better and over 75% report that Bearable helps them to feel more in control of their health.

There are a number of ways in which Bearable protects the privacy and security of our member’s data. These include:

    1. GDPR Compliance. As a British company we’re compliant with EU data protection laws which are more protective of an individuals data rights than HIPAA. This also means that we do not have to comply with requests for data from US law enforcement.

    2. We use Google Cloud Platform (GCP) to backup and secure your data. GCP is GDPR and CCPA compliant and is certified under major privacy and security standards including ISO 27001 and SOC 1, SOC 2, and SOC 3.

    3. Your data is encrypted at rest using Google Cloud Platform services. This essentially means that your data is encrypted from your device all the way to the server. In addition to this, Google Cloud also encrypt the infrastructure, platform, and hardware that this data is stored on – so there are multiple layers of encryption protecting your data. These measures are used to protect your data from unauthorised access.

    4. We will never sell your data and this has been our philosophy since day one. Whilst other companies focus on revenue, our primary focus is to help people to understand and manage their health. This is the same reason we don’t show ads in the app and our only revenue stream is an optional subscription. 

    5. We collect as little Personally Identifiable Information (PII) as possible. The only information needed to create a Bearable account is your email address. That means no name, no home address, no credit card information, no biometrics, no birthdate, and nothing else that could be used to personally identify you directly or indirectly. The only instance in which phone number data may be collected is if you choose to create an account using your Facebook/Meta account.

    6. Most importantly, you have complete control of your data at all times and from within the app. From the settings screen, you’re able to delete your account and/or data at any time.

If you have any questions or concerns about your data privacy, please contact us at support@bearable.app

If you’re someone who lives with Migraines AND …

    • High Stress
    • Allergies
    • Anxiety
    • Depression
    • Fatigue or Exhaustion
    • Insomnia or Sleep issues
    • Chronic pain
    • Chronic illness
    • Rare disease
    • Disability
    • Autism
    • ADHD
    • IBS or IBD

…. then Bearable is likely the better app for you to track – and make sense of – all of your health (and/or neurodevelopment) conditions in a single app.

If you’d like to understand the relationship between – for example – your menstrual cycle and your migraines, then Bearable can help in a way that Migraine Buddy cannot.

As one of the leading Chronic Illness, Pain, Symptom, Health, AND Migraine apps in the US and UK, Bearable is better equipped to help you understand and manage multiple health issues.

This is because Bearable is managed by a team of people living with multiple chronic conditions (including Migraines, Anxiety, Depression, Blood disease, Autism, Chronic Pain, and more).

We also collect feedback from a community of hundreds of thousands of people living with multiple chronic illnesses (including migraines, chronic pain, and headaches)  to inform every new app feature.

However, if the only health condition you need to manage is a Migraine then Migraine Buddy could be a good option for you.

GDPR Compliant
