Daith piercing for migraines?

Has anyone had a daith piercing for migraines and has it helped?

I like the look of the piercing anyway, so even if it didn't work it wouldn't be something I regret.

My daughter constantly suffered from headaches (almost daily), she had this piercing because she liked it. She has found that she doesn't get as many headaches. Now this may be coincidence but she is happier. So if you like it, go for it. I would be interested to hear if you found it helped too.

Thank Arabella, glad it has helped your daughter. I think I've got nothing to lose by getting it done.

Just been told about this and keen to try it out. Chronic migraines here too

Daith piercing for migraines? What a crock!

RadiatorWatch Wed 08-Mar-17 20:27:38

Did it not work for you highinthesky?

Maybe just massive coincidence but my daughter has had crippling migraines since the age of 8...up to 4,5,6 a month each lasting 2-3 days and loads of time off school.
she had the piercing last year at 16 and hasn't had a migraine since (touch wood!)

Yes, it totally worked for me.

Wouldn't be without it now.

I still get migraines, far less frequent and far less intense.

Good to hear some positive stories!
I love the look of the heart ones, but have heard they're really difficult to put in. Did you get your piercer to fit it?

My niece has a daith piercing for migraines. She says it works.

I used to get migraines almost daily and since my daith piercing I get them much less frequently, I definitely think it is worth trying to see if it helps you.

Mine works. I was getting them every month at the end of my period. Haven't had one in 8 months.

I didn't want to start a separate thread about this but on the subject of migraine, I have lower eye lid twitching during and after my last one. It hasnt gone away. Anyone else had it?

I'd love to see some clinical findings on this or some evidence based knowledge. My husband suffers badly but is a bit needle phobic!

I had a quick google for stats on it as I suffer too.

Apparently nearly 70% of people report no change in migraine after the piercing.
