Piercing is a form of self expression these days, along with tattoos of every shape and size. I try not to judge--and here is one good reason why.
Have you ever seen someone with a piercing like the one above? This is known as Daith piercing. It is not just someone trying to be stylish! This is actually an acupuncture practice that has been in existence for thousands of years. There is no scientific evidence to support this practice, but many migraine sufferers who have this piercing report a reduced frequency in migraine attacks.
Migraine headaches are a complex neurological event. More than 3 million persons in the US experience a migraine attack every year. The pain can be so severe as to cause nausea and vomiting, and can incapacitate a person for hours to days. If you experience severe headache, typically a throbbing on one side of the head, accompanied by sensitivity to light and/or nausea/vomiting, it just might be a migraine. There are many pharmacological and non-pharmacological ways to gain control of recurrence, so visit your health care provider for an assessment and treatment plan that's right for you!
