Daith Piercing Update – 1 year later

I cannot believe it’s been a year since I had my daith’s pierced.

I have had a few instances of headaches, but, not migraines. I believe these were allergy related and sometimes from being tired.

Everything is all healed and most days I don’t even know they are there.

I recently visited my piercer to show him how great they look and to give him an update. He’s so happy that it worked for me.

I know it doesn’t work for everyone, I’m very, very grateful that it works for me.

After 27 years of having a migraine that put me in bed, dark room, nausea, depressing thoughts, 3-4 times a week, it’s finally over. I lost entire chunks of my life to migraine’s.

It all started when I had my tubal a year after my last child was born. Then, something happened in my body and I would get a migraine. I would, I had to, work through it when my kids were little. I didn’t have anyone else there. Just me when my husband was deployed.

No doctor could help. I was given many different prescriptions to try. They all failed.

This piercing changed my life. My daughter has had the same results as well. Read through all of the posts within the category piercing here and you can see how it changed my life.

Another update

I had some issues with the curved eyebrow bars in my daith’s being too long. So, I asked my piercer if they could be shortened. Do you know what he said? He told me that they were the shortest that he can buy, but, that he would make me some that fit better. So, he took some straight bars, made them curved and now my ears are happier. 🙂 I love them.

I’ve had two headaches since September started and both were muffled migraines. I took two Tylenol’s and the headache disappeared.

I have my life back. It’s amazing too!

Daith Update!

It’s been 70 days since I had my right daith piercing and 23 days since my left side was pierced.

I’ve had a very slight headache here and there, but, nothing that counts as a migraine or even a tension headache.

We went on a road trip, drove 9+ hours each way.

No issues on the trip at all.

I’m still cleaning both piercings twice a day…and my tragus piercing too.

At the end of the summer I plan on getting my right tragus and my right daith earrings changed to something other than a ring. I’m starting to look around for different ideas.

This has changed my life so much. If you haven’t had any relief from migraines and you want to try it, I would. It does hurt for a minute, but, nothing like child birth, labor pains, tattoos. It’s painful, then it’s gone.

Check out this previous post for the info for cleaning. I created my own solution after using this solution and it seems to be working perfectly.

Cleaning supplies and information.

Another daith piercing update!

I have had my second piercing almost a week and my right ear piercing for just over a month now.

One of my major triggers for migraines has always been the heat. I could never go outside in the middle of the summer for any length of time. I would be okay for about 15 minutes, then, I would start getting a headache and it would turn into a migraine.

Well, that’s changed! I went to a garden dinner on Friday night. I was outside continually for over 2 hours. I did go inside briefly to get water or more food, but, I was definitely outside for more than a 15 minute stretch.

I came home and then I realized that I didn’t have any sort of headache. Not even a slight one.

Wow, this is a life changer for me. I have always wanted to go on a missions trip, but I couldn’t because of headaches and migraines from the heat.

I also ate garlic on Saturday with  no issues, not even a slight headache.

I’ve been working out on my elliptical over the past week or so, it’s been a while since I’ve used it here at home. I have had no issues with headaches at all. So this will change how I distance run and exercise greatly!

So amazing!!
