No. I was thinking of having a website where you could say what problems you had, modeled like a graph.
Something that would allow us later on, as we have more users, to automatically run plots over and stuff like that.
Each user can, for instance, have a location, an age, a profession, etc.
Then each user has associated a set of conditions.
He knows he has those conditions because he has a set of symptoms, as well a severity of symptoms.
He also knows that he can improve some of the symptoms with a set of workarounds (could't come up with a better name).
He can also list what has he tried and why. And what seemed to work and what didn't. And why, etc.
What other migraine triggers does he have? Food? Noise? etc
The user also has a set of non-migraine-related conditions (bruxism, hay-fever, broken, septum, etc) that maybe is actually migraine related. But we can only know after we start having tens or hundreds of people putting their data.
I think at least in the beginning we would allow the users to input their stuff in textual form and we would then create this node structure for them, but over time we would start noticing that the structure was solidifying and probably users could add their stuff completely autonomously. But I digress. We currently have so few users that we can get away doing things manually.
You may think this is too much stuff. Most people would start off by just putting the most obvious and simple stuff. That would already be OK. But most people here are also desperate, so maybe they will take the time to sit down and write down everything they can think of. Just looking to the data of other users may make them realize that they also share some of the conditions. Maybe then patterns start to quickly emerge. I don't know. Think of all the information that these ~100 users already put here. It's a lot of info, but unfortunately it's completely dispersed and in a terrible format (written text). We need something that makes running queries over it easy and straight forward, and that makes visualizing it also easy (what's the % of people here with cluster headaches, when did the most people start noticing these problems, etc).
This is a cool project on its own but unfortunately for the following months I most likely won't have any time to develop such a site. Ideally it would be tied to this forum, so we could easily jump from here to there and vice-versa.
