It has only been nine days since I went and got my daith pierced. I know of a few people that have had it done simply for the relief of migraines. Those people have ALL reported a major improvement! So I made an appointment at a local and highly recommended shop to get the piercing done to my right ear. I figured my right ear would be best because I habitually sleep on my left side and I expected it to be sore.
Now I expected it to hurt some, more than when I self pierced my earlobes, because it goes through the ear cartilage. When I went in the lady who did it was very nice and explained all that she was going to do before she did it. I was surprised to feel a little nervous while I was sitting there. She sterilized my ear thoroughly and placed a clamp on that little part of my ear that was to receive the earing. Then came the moment when she told me to take a breath in and a then let it out. It was upon the exhale that the needle was plunged through with an audible pop.
My legs actually kicked out with the moment of pain…I was a bit embarrassed by that and the moisture brought to my eye. For goodness sake I have had surgeries, injuries galore, years worth of monthly iv treatments, broken bones, and birthed three children all to find a piercing made me jump. Rather sad I know.
She continued to swab the newly punctured ear and then fed the earring through slick as a whistle. After getting post care instructions I was out the door. The whole process was maybe five minutes at most. My ear felt a bit tender for a couple of days but really nothing to even notice unless you accidentally bumped it.
So as I stated before I had this done nine days ago and my ear nearly fully healed, the earing moves around with ease and no discomfort. The most important thing to report is that I have had no migraine for 9 days. I cannot remember the last time I went 9 days without a migraine. Now I did have a tension headache one day but I was seriously stressing out about a sudden $800.00 automotive repair job and was unconsciously clenching my jaw. But that was it!
As time goes I will periodically update all of you on how well it is working for staving off the migraines. Time will tell if this a true cure-all, but so far everything is all sunshine and lollipops.
