Does anyone with daith piercings have to use ear canal ear plugs?

I heard that bars are better than hoops for the daith piercing. My job requires me to wear ear canal ear plugs sometimes. Do the earrings interfere with the seal? Is one style of eating better to use with ear plugs?

Daith piercings anyone know which ear to do?

Daith piercings anyone know which ear to do?

Hi I am seriously considering the Daith piercing and I have heard people say one ear or the other is better. My migraines move left side, right side, full on. Which side should I choose? It’s painful so I don’t want to do the wrong ear and have to get it done again

A MyMigraineTeam Member said:

I did the left because my migraines are on the left but I'm thinking about doing the other, as well.

Does anyone else have problems with light sensitivity to headlights?

Does anyone else have problems with light sensitivity to headlights?

As the days get shorter night driving or even being a passenger in car the oncoming headlights trigger a terrible migraine. I have bought glasses that are supposed to reduce the glare but they don't help much. I find that as the days get shorter by life gets smaller.

I’m not sure how heat and ice work for migraines. Is one supposed to be better than the other?

I’m not sure how heat and ice work for migraines. Is one supposed to be better than the other?

My migraines are always on my left side-temple, jaw, eye socket. I’ve been using ice packs but wonder if heat would alleviate pain better? I think in general ice is for reducing swelling and inflammation and heat increases blood flow. Which would be helpful in the head?

A MyMigraineTeam Member said:

Yes I use ice and it will numb the pain for a bit. So I have to stop and start up again when able.
