Daith Piercing Relief

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.

2016-08-10 17.56.55.jpgNow 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.

Oh just between us I kind of feel like a badass with this extra earing.   😉

  1. Hi there, just reading you’re blog and curious to hear how it’s been since you had the piercing. I’m a FTM and have been suffering chronic migraine for years but now have just been diagnosed with MS.. would love to hear whether this piercing has continued to help you. Any updates?

    1. It’s been 6 months? Yeah sounds about right. I have only had 2 occurrences of migraine since I had this piercing done and both were comparatively mild to what I had been suffering with. I really am glad that I did it. I have 3 friends and 2 family members do it after I made this blog post and all of them are finding it has made a huge difference in their life. Now, I do know one person who had the daith piercing done and found no relief. He is a 60 something man with very thick ear cartilage-he said it was a miserable experience to get it and has found no improvement.
      I really am sorry to hear that you have joined the MS club but really do hope you have a mild and easy road with it.
