Is the headache piercing everything it’s cracked up to be? Here’s my six-month update:
Out of complete frustration and exhaustion coming up on day 3 of a full-blown migraine, I decided enough was enough. I found a local tattoo parlor that specializes in the Daith Piercing and decided it was now or never.
It’s been six months and I wanted to give you my completely honest update.
With relief, I can finally say my daith piercing seems to be healed. I can once again sleep on that side, bump it without wincing and turn it with ease. The weirdest part is, there didn’t really seem to be a transition. It went from being insanely sore and swollen to not.
Words of advice – if you’re planning on getting your daith piercing for migraines or have recently had it done, use the salt water often. Don’t skip a day! I started to get lazy and would forget to do it here and there and I think that’s why I ended up getting the disgusting blister from my last update. Don’t be like me. Take care of yourself and your piercing.

So, now that that is out of the way let’s talk about the migraines. I wouldn’t say the daith piercing has cured my migraines but I went from having multiple a week to having 1-2 a month. As migraine sufferers know, the migraines are awful but the rebound headaches can be just as sucky. I am happy to report that they are basically gone as well. I am no longer taking any daily preventatives and rarely have to take any prescription meds at all.
That’s a pretty big win considering this was how many medications I was taking before:
This will be my last update about my daith piercing unless something drastically changes. Please note that everyone’s body is different and these are my results. This post is in no way telling you the migraine piercing will work for you, but in my opinion, it is worth a shot.
