How long have you had migraines?
When do you usually get migraines?
I wake up with them in the morning. I also have triggers, like: certain foods, too much sleep, too much sun, altitude.
What have you tried pre-Cefaly?
Many things! A variety of medicines, chiropractor, acupuncture, cranial sacral body work.
What does your migraine feel like?
I do not get an aura like some do. I get intense pain – usually one side much more than the other side of my head. I get nauseous and am sensitive to light and sound. They last anywhere from a day to a couple of days.
How did you hear about Cefaly?
My neurologist prescribed it.
What’s your Cefaly experience like?
I have been receiving neurotoxin injections for migraine for about 4-5 years. I have been using Cefaly for about 2-3 years. The combination is making a huge improvement in the frequency of the migraines. I used to get them about 15-20 days a month. Now, I get them 2-5 days a month. I use sumatriptan when I feel a migraine coming on. I recently got the Cefaly Dual to see if it could help eliminate a migraine once it starts.
