    Default Do acupressure bands work for HG?

    Has anyone here had HG or severe morning sickness and had some relief with the seasickness band things? Or would they only work for mild m/s????

    I have severe HG! I found the only thing that works was zofran but it's very $$$$ So if your still feeling crap then ask your doc

    Thanks. 8mg of Zofran takes the edge off a bit but not worth the cost. I think the bands are also helping slightly but nothing significant.
