Nerve Stimulators for Migraines

I’m doing a nerve stimulator trial for my migraines.

I just had the surgery for the trial which will be 3 – 5 days. When I was still in recovery my headache was already going away.

If I get at least 50% relief during this trial I will be able to get the permanent stimulator in 2 – 4 weeks.

    I hoping to get accepted into this study shortly. I just completed my medical questionnaire and then they have to assess it. I’m crossing my fingers.

    There are so many different ones now, best of luck. I did have a Prism stimulator, didn’t help much but trial wouldn’t allow it to be turned up to recommended numbers by the doctors! Might have worked much better except for it being an FDA trial and the study rules. Get as much info as you can in writing. I know they work wonders for back pain too.

    I’d love to know the outcome. This has been discussed with me in the past, not for my migraines though but for my daily/continuous cervicogenic headaches.
    I hope this brings you the relief you need.

    Oops I was responding to an article/blog. I’d erase that post if my iPad would allow it! Duh! Good thing it wasn’t a really personal response! Geeeeze!
