Daith Piercing
A MyMigraineTeam Member asked a question 💭

Anyone have any info on a Daith piercing? I am considering it, but need more information.

A MyMigraineTeam Member

I tried it a few years ago. Made mine worse, so I took out the earring and let it grow over. I'd recommend trying acupuncture first. They use the same point, and if that works, you might be a good… read more

I am planning to have this done soon. Finally found someone to do this and she is a professional and a good friend of a good friend of mine so not afraid of having her do it.

Daith Piercing
A MyMigraineTeam Member asked a question 💭

Does anyone here have Pesudotumor Cerebri or Intracranial Hypertension that has shunts but still has migraines? My migraines are in the back of my head and not on one side or the other, just all across the back, so which side would be best for a piercing? I’m not looking at getting both done.

A MyMigraineTeam Member

I would suggest getting both sides done! I have a Pseudo Tumor. I went to get my daiths done with a migraine and walked out with no migraine.

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.

A MyMigraineTeam Member

My cousin did and it hasn't helped her's so i haven't done it.

Daith Pierce
A MyMigraineTeam Member asked a question 💭

Hello.
I am thinking about getting a daith piercing for chronic migraines. I have used just about everything all over the years. I currently take propranolol, but it seems to becoming less effective and I frequently get breakthrough migraines lasting for days.
I see a lot of people say that this pierce is very painful, just wondered if it is more painful than a helix pierce or a navel pierce, which I have had previously?
Thanks in advance. Cate

Should I just get one daith piercing or both done ????

A MyMigraineTeam Member

Left side is said to be most effective, but I had both done to give myself the best chances, and it has helped.

A MyMigraineTeam Member asked a question 💭
A MyMigraineTeam Member

I know of 3 people that it did help so I tried it. My migraines change sides so I had both ears done. Unfortunately it didn’t help me at all. I’d definitely try it & use some who knows where to put… read more

I was on shots for almost 3 years but then it stopped working. I was on Aimovig but after a year I switched to Emgality, not as many side effects for me
