Being that i have the LOWEST tolerance on earth, I'd say a 9. You can look up a chart if the most painful piercings it's rated second highest, HOWEVER, that said I'm actually going to bear the pain and get my right side done just for the reliefe I've experienced so far. My migraines haven't been nearly as severe as they've been in YEARS. And not as frequent either. I'll take a few hours of pain for the reliefe I've had

I got my left ear daith piercing about 4 weeks ago. I have a low pain tolerance so it hurt bad but by morning i didn't feel it anymore. (Pierced around 10pm) I typically experience over 20 migraines a month and ive had 2. I think it has deliberately given me a positive result but i think it's too early to attribute to 1 hole in my ear 🤷‍♀️ If your considering the piercing would you like a few hours of pain and potential relief, or continue suffering with the migraines?

I’ve had my daith piercing for over a year, and personality I can’t say i have noticed a change in the amount of migraines I get. But at least I got a cute piercing out of it, lol.

I’ve always heard you should get the daith on the opposite side that you get your migraines on. For me, my migraines don’t stick to one side, or they just take over my whole head.

I’ve been considering getting the daith in the other ear as well to see if that helps. I’ve heard from several people it has helped them. It’s does have different effects for different people.

Pain wise, it’s not extremely painful. The popping sound it makes when it goes through the cartilage might be the most unsettling part about it.

But, you never know it might work for you! Don’t knock it until you try it!
