Last week I posted about my new daith piercing and how it had banished the headache I had for the previous four days.
A week later, and I still haven’t had a headache. I can’t remember the last time I went a whole week without a headache… it may have been some time back when I was in high school.
I did have two flashes of pain on Sunday, like the ones I often get before a migraine sets in. Nothing eventuated, though.
I can’t really overstate how significant this is for me. This is little short of a minor miracle.
I still have my chronic pain from fibromyalgia and the pain and compromised movement from a lower spine that thinks it’s 85 years old, but I can manage that.
I have got through hot weather, busy days and work deadlines without tension. These things have always been headache triggers for me. One day I will get brave and eat some cashews, just to see if I pass that test.
People who didn’t know about the piercing have commented on how relaxed I seem. I certainly haven’t felt the tension I generally have before under those same conditions.
So, it’s a very happy “so far, so good!” From me.
If you suffer migraine or cluster/chronic headaches, it’s certainly worth considering a daith piercing. It still seems to be working for me.
