I finally had it with my migraines & decided to go forth with this so called "cure for migraines piercing." I'm sure glad I did! The piercing pain hurt less than my actual migraine (that I did have at the time of the piercing) after just a few mins, I felt my migraine move to the back of my head and go down to a tiny headache hours later that I could deal with! Now just a baby aspirin can relieve the rest of the headaches when they come on (which is very little). It definitely worked for me!
