Getting the Daith Piercing for migraines. Does it really work?
As I’ve shared with you before, I suffer from migraines; in fact, I suffer from them quite often. Sometimes I can brush them off and continue with my day, albeit struggling. Other times; getting out of bed becomes an unobtainable task. If you suffer from migraines as well, then you definitely know what I’m talking about. The moment you get the slightest warning that a migraine is coming, your day can be turned upside down from the anxiety of something you just can’t stop.
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.
Well, it’s been two weeks and I wanted to give you a completely honest update.

Today marks exactly two weeks since getting the Daith Piercing for migraines and so far, it’s been wonderful. Now, for complete disclosure, I wouldn’t consider myself migraine-free like I have heard so many others say after being pierced. Six days in I had to take an Imitrex after a few of my other medications failed and a migraine rained on my parade. But, that being said, I’ve had one… one migraine in two weeks – which is huge. I’m used to suffering from several migraines a week, so having just one feels like a victory.
As far as the actual piercing goes, that too has been better than I anticipated. It doesn’t hurt and the only time it feels uncomfortable is when I really hit it or bump it somehow. There hasn’t been any sort of infection, no redness or swelling and very limited crust build up. Yeah, I went there. I told you I would keep it real. Sleeping on it is uncomfortable but I can imagine that’s normal considering the given four-month healing time.
So, there it is. My two-week update on my Daith Piercing. If you have any questions be sure to post them below and I will get them answered as soon as I can!
