Identify the cause of your headaches, and the cure

Developed by neurologists, neuroscientists, doctors and researchers, FixMyHeadache is an advanced database of research findings and knowledge about headaches and their treatment.

Headache sufferers interrogate the database through interaction with our ChatBot.

By answering a series of questions about your type of headache, we cross-reference thousands of data points to accurately identify it, determine the underlying causes, then recommend specific treatments to target the condition.

In just a few minutes:

Correctly Diagnose your exact type of headache, Discover the Underlying Causes with targeted investigation, and Receive a Tailored Plan to help treat your condition.

65% of headaches are misdiagnosed.1

Most headaches are assessed through specialist clinician-patient consultations. Unfortunately, a large proportion are misdiagnosed, so if you have had a specialist consultation, it pays to get a second opinion. FixMyHeadache follows protocols established by The International Classification of Headache Disorders² to correctly diagnose over 90 different types of headache.

“Without correct diagnosis, the chances of improvement are greatly diminished.”

Accurate Diagnosis:

The FixMyHeadache ChatBot navigates you through a series of questions to provide accurate diagnosis.

Headaches are the symptom of an underlying cause. Unfortunately, most current headache medications do not address the cause, only the symptoms. From your diagnosis we can answer specific questions to uncover the underlying cause of your condition.

Medications for different headache types are also wide and varied. Without accurate diagnosis the chances of receiving the correct medication and improving your condition are significantly lower.

FixMyHeadache’s diagnosis will match you with the medications that provide the best chance of significant improvement.

Identifying Underlying Causes

Headaches are complex and often the result of multiple causes.

Following diagnosis, FixMyHeadache reviews the major body system. Complications within these systems and their interactions lead to headaches. By completing the investigation through the chatbot we can uncover the underlying cause of your headaches. We explain this in an easy- to-understand way that highlights how our recommended treatment plan will target your specific condition.

Tailored Treatment

Having established your headache type and the underlying causes, FixMyHeadache will then recommend two treatment options; drug treatments and natural treatments.

Drug Treatments include medications known to be effective for your condition, updated by current research for best practice in the field of neurology. This information affords you a second opinion from a neurologist and includes details on acute and preventative drugs, their performance and dosages. Many drug therapies come with significant side effects and do not address the underlying cause.

Natural Treatments are an alternative option. FixMyHeadache’s extensive research into natural treatments includes those known to be effective against headaches.

In some cases, these are more effective than drug treatments without the side effects. They target the underlying cause of your headaches and may also address a range of other symptoms you are also experiencing.
