    I got the daith piercing almost two years ago now. I only got it on the left side and it seemed to help a little bit but honestly my migraines came back as strong as they were before, so I don’t feel that it helped me. However it was worth the try because it is only an earring and it didn’t hurt when they put it in so I figured it was not that big of a deal to get. Now its just another piercing.

    My migraine problem has been a frustrating journey indeed! got my first one at 27, then was forced to the ER a fair number of times because three days of vomiting a blindness in one eye. Not only am I allergic to Tramadol and Torodol (they make my tongue swell) but I have stage 2 chronic kidney disease and cant have any ibprofen NSAID kind of drug. I have been given the “Cocktail” would often have something in it that the world was fine with it seemed but there I was, pulling out the IV and running away. I would cry so embarrassed to ask for narcotics for fear of judgment but scared that I was going to be blind in my right eye forever. I had a neurologist who retired while treating me. His PA got fired for screaming and yelling at patients. I have been at my wits end. I’m 30. I went full throttle with a daith piercing last year. It scared me at first (you see gnarly pics of infected piercings) plus I didn’t want to look “wild”. You need no script. you have to have one for botox. Find the nicest place you can find and go. After I got it done, to my amazement migraines went from all the time to about every 4-6 weeks. Still terrible, but the pain is NEVER in the side I got the piercing in. I don’t really buy into EVERYTHING alternative as I should, but my Daith piering has really helped me. You have nothing to loose at some point.
