How long have you had migraines?
I’ve had migraines for about as long as I can remember. I don’t have a specific time frame when they started but I remember getting headaches as a kid. When I started getting older, probably in my 20s, I started getting auras.
When do you usually get migraines?
The only thing I know for sure that triggers my migraines is caffeine.
What does your migraine feel like?
It’s usually in the front part of my head. I’ll initially get the aura, I’ll start to lose my vision and as that subsides the headache will onset slowly. Sometimes it’s really painful but other times there’s no pain at all. If there is pain it is in the front of my head around where you’d usually attach the device. I hate the aura so much. It just feels like something is wrong with you and it scares me every time, even though I know what it is.
How did you hear about Cefaly?
I learned about it while doing research.
What’s your Cefaly experience like?
This device seems to really be working; it may just be a coincidence but I just don’t get them that often anymore. Before Cefaly it seemed like I was getting them six to 12 times a year. This device I’d probably use it if I didn’t get migraines it’s like getting a deep tissue massage in your head. It just makes my head feel good. Over the past couple of years I’ve only had three or four migraines total. I’ve been using Cefaly about 3-years.
What made you want to share your story?
I just thought I’d put the information out there for other people who have migraines. The Cefaly has been helpful and migraines are a bad issue. It’s definitely something that when you get one, you can get pretty incapacitated.
