Who has gotten one? Does it work? How bad does it hurt? I have suffered from bad headaches and migraines for as long as I can remember and they are that bad most medications don't work and I often end up at the hospital getting a shot and a drip and am willing to try just about anything to make them stop. However even after many many hours in a tattoo chair piercing pain scares the crap out of me and would really like to hear if they have worked for people before getting one

Daith piercing for migraines

I did a bit of reading on this myself recently and I think the jury is still out on whether it is actually helpful or not. The principle behind it is a certain acupressure/acupuncture point in your ear. The issue with the piercing itself is that if the person doing the piercing doesn't get it exactly in the right spot, then it will do nothing for your migraines. Those that have had relief have either had someone specially trained to know exactly where to go, or have just had a lucky shot. Have you looked into acupuncture? I've had it twice for migraines and each time it significantly reduced the frequency of them (from every couple of weeks to 1-2 in almost a year). They can also leave something in the point (can't for the life of me remember what it's called) but it looks like a little thumbtack. Basically it can stay in for a certain amount of time stimulating the point. Might be worth a look. It would hurt far less than a tattoo/piercing for sure too.
