Daith piercing

I have heard a lot of the daith piercing. I was wondering if anyone has done it. Did it work for you? How long did it take before it work? Need pro and con's about this kind of piercing before I do it.

Pros. Less frequent/intense migraines and headaches. When you do get headaches just gently twist, spin or press on the jewelry and it goes away quickly.… read more

How much does the weather play a role with your migraine

I can't believe how much better I feel now that the temperature has dropped. There also does not seem to be the big fluctuations in the temperature, humidity and barometric pressure. The thing that is still messing with my head is precipitation. I know the day before it's going to rain, then it rains and then it takes a day to feel better. That's three days out of my life. Weather migraines are really bad, anybody else have them? In sure lots of us do.… read more

Do you feel guilty about things you can not do?

It is a beautiful sunny day, the kind of day that I should be out doing some yard work. But, I just can't. My husband works at least 60 hours a week and this weekend he is working on my summer car. We have hired someone to do our yard work and some inside work that I am unable to do. I find it frustrating, and embarrassing that I have to hire someone to work for me and I find myself feeling very guilty. I don't know how to deal with these emotions. I was always the… read more

Do you often or occasionally wake in pain ? I do often. But does anyone have migraines in their sleep, that become incorporated into and a part of your dreams/nightmares?

Who experiences auras before migraines sometimes?

I have always had some visual disturbance with and preceding a migraine. However it is rarer that I have a super aura. The first time I had one, I woke to the certainty of police and emergency vehicles outside our window. The red lights were flashing all around my room. I got out of bed to look out the window, there was nothing. Yet the red flashing continued for a few minutes. Followed by a migraine the first time, but not every time. Sometimes it looks more like… read more

Have you done a life journal. That will help you pin point when what how your migraines start. Do this at least 6 months.

At what number on a scale from 1-10 do you rate your “Average” migraine pain?

I have read comments about migraine scales being different for everyone. I agree with that. Which left me wondering, with 1 being the lowest and 10 the highest, pain level and incapacitation. What do you consider a “average” or tolerable number on the scale? For me, at 1-3 I feel like I could throw a party, in my head. 3-4 is normal tolerable, allowing me to still function. 5-6 I feel anxious, cautious and usually take medication. 7-8 I’m… read more

Does any one else have a really painful neck when a migraine hits?

When I get a migraine my neck hurts really bad. I have found a neck brace really helps with the pain. Does any one else have this problem? Has any one else used a neck brace for this too? What else has any one tried that works?

I have neck pain also and the pain in my neck lingers sometimes for days afterwards. I use an ice pack to help relieve the tight feeling and pain.

If you have had the daith piercing done what is the recovery time like? How quickly did you notice a difference in your migraines?

I am currently receiving Botox however this last one is not helping. I am considering the daith piercing but I keep seeing such mixed reviews. I would like to get information from others that have had it done.
