How long have you had migraines?
I’ve had migraines about 10 years.
When do you usually get migraines?
I haven’t really identified any triggers but changes in weather and lighting sometimes bother me.
What have you tried pre-Cefaly?
I’ve tried every medication under the sun. I started acupuncture but I haven’t been to my acupuncturist for a year. I do feel acupuncture is helpful. I also tried neurotoxin injections and that helped for a while but then I stopped working.
What does your migraine feel like?
My migraines feel like a lot of pressure and pounding and bad.
How did you hear about Cefaly?
My neurologist recommended the Cefaly device to me.
What’s your Cefaly experience like?
It’s been helping pretty well. I think I’ve had it more than a couple of years. I use it sometimes preventively but I tend to use it more often once I have a migraine. I find it drops the pain level. If I used it every day, as I feel I should, it would probably help even more.
