First Name: Kay
Location: Twin Cities, Minnesota
Years with Migraines: 28+
How long have you had migraines?
They were originally diagnosed as sinus headaches….about 28 years since they were diagnosed and starting to be treated.
When do you usually get migraines?
I mostly get them mid to late afternoon.
What have you tried pre-Cefaly?
For medication, I use a triptan to abort and atenolol 50+25 mg, first in a.m. then 6 hours later.
What does your migraine feel like?
Like something is burrowing into my head.
How did you hear about Cefaly?
The migraine clinic I go to told me about it.
What’s your Cefaly experience like?
It’s very helpful to keep at bay. I use it as preventive, and have done so for the past year. It generally does not abort the headache unless I use it the moment I get any symptoms. On days I seek to be medication free (to avoid rebound from meds) I keep it on my head usually all day.
What made you want to share your story?
I hope that my story would help someone get to a final solution to this ailment.
