Migraine is a poorly understood disease and it is estimated that 15% of people in Europe alone are affected by it. In this study skin electrodermal activity (EDA) signals of left and right wrists were collected from a migraine patient to see if the asymmetry associated with EDA signals will affect to migraine detection based on wearable sensors. In the study, nighttime EDA storm epochs were detected and visual inspection on total time of EDA storm epochs and timing of EDA storms between wrists were done. Also filtered EDA signals of nights that preceded migraine attacks were visually checked. According to the results, EDA measurements from one wrist are enough to detect changes before a migraine attack because the EDA asymmetry measured between wrists might play not a significant role in migraine prediction.
