Neuro Stimulator

If some of you haven’t heard of this it is something you should check out. I had one installed permanently on Aug. 13th. I had to go back 2 times for the program to be adjusted but I am thoroughly happy. I have not had one migraine in over 4 weeks. Yes I said 4 weeks. I was having 3-4 a week for 12 years. Been through every known prescription or medical procedure out there. It will never get rid of them all but it can cut down on the frequency. I have felt them coming on several times and turned up the stimulator with the remote I have and they never materialized.

    Does insurance pay on these procedures?

    I am doing fantastic. It’s been 3 months and I have not had one migraine that had kept me in bed. I have had about 3 that were annoying bt I was still able to function. I have y life back now. I’m sure everyone out there can relate to what I’m saying. I want to scream from the rooftops about this procedure. If you know anyone who had back pain it is also used for that. And my sister read an article that it helps sleep stones also.

    If TMS does work, I will have the neuron stimulator implanted. Thank you for your valuable information about your experience.

    I meant if TMS does not work.

    Thank you for telling us about the nuerostimulator. I have been almost in the house in my recliner for 4 weeks with incapacitating migraines. Most times in total darkness. When I see my neurologist I will ask about it. Thank you again!!

    Hi Diane, thanks for sharing your amazing results! We always love sharing in our member’s success.

    As with any treatment protocol we recommend talking to your doctor about the options you are interested in. While some protocols are wildly successful for some suffers, other members are not good candidates for the same protocol.

    We’re sending all good wishes for continued success with your implant. -All Best, Donna (Migraine.com team)
