Daith Piercing

What do you guys think of Daith piercings for treatment of migraines? Has anyone tried them?

  1. I'm curious about that also. Because I would be all in for that one. I think I'm going to try it. In the long run a small piercing is a small price to pay. If it doesn't work, you can always take it out.

    1. I have been wondering the same thing. I guess there isn't anyone with experience with the piercing here.

      I am considering nerve stimulation with the Omega procedure, so the piercing seems a lot less invasive to try first. I wonder if anyone piercing shop can do it or if you have to go to someone who specializes in putting them in for headaches.

      1. Just as a follow up to my earlier post, I went and got the piercing. Even though it may just be a fad and totally bogus, I love it. I only had it done Saturday, and it's only been 3 days, so I can't tell if it's helped yet. I will say that after I had it done Saturday afternoon, it did trigger a mild migraine. But it was very mild and I didn't even take meds for it. I've still had some typical, short-lived pains, but no full-blown migraines. I won't really have an opinion either way for a couple of months. Then I can say for sure if my # of migraines have decreased.

        2ajqdhr - I went to a tattoo and piercing shop. The lady who did mine said she had done quite a few of them for migraine relief and everyone she had heard back from said it had helped. But I don't know how reliable that is.

        I'm not usually one to jump on a bandwagon, and to be quite honest, I'll be totally shocked if it helps at all. But I love the piercing, am desperate and have an open mind.
