GammaCore Use

This video shows what it’s like to use the gammaCore, an external vagus nerve stimulator. It’s painless and (relatively) quick. The stimulator runs for two minutes and you use it twice for each migraine attack. I wait five minutes between “stims” (as I call each time it runs), so the whole process takes about 10 minutes.
