The following terms of use is an agreement between you and us, BetterQOL Inc, the makers of the iHeadache family of electronic headache diaries that include mobile apps, user web site diary, and healthcare professional web site.  The term we and us therefore potentially refer to the company, all of its officers, shareholders, physician advisers, employees, and agents.  It is current as of August 1, 2013 but may be updated from time to time.

We Do Not Make Any Medical Diagnosis or Give Medical Advice.  We Do Not Endorse Any Medical Providers.

iHeadache looks at the symptoms that you enter, medications that you take, and various preferences and compares that to published information from the International Headache Society (web site link) to see if the data for any single entry potentially meets criteria for one of the headache types that we support.  The total list of diagnosis that we support will change from time to time.  Currently, we support Migraine, Possible Migraine, and Tension type headaches.  We ignore the possibility of medication overuse headache in analyzing the data.

For user convenience, iHeadache maintains a list of active medications, common triggers, preventative medications, and registered providers.  Having these lists make iHeadache easier for you to use but does not constitute an endorsement of any specific treatment or provider.
