Can ear piercings relieve migraine pain?
More than 60 million people in the U.S. suffer from migraine pain, two-thirds of which are women.
Many people will do whatever it takes to rid themselves of the pain, including piercing their daith.
“I’ve heard people say they could feel [the pressure] just leave their body as soon as they got that piercing and I’m just hoping for the best,” said Jennifer Marcial, who has suffered from migraines since the birth of her daughter.
“That was 8 years ago, so I’ve been suffering for 8 years,” said Marcial, 33. “The longest one I’ve had was three weeks ….and I was actually hospitalized.”
Marcial allowed us to watch on as she got her daith piercing at Aces in Denton.
“We’ve had a lot of customers come in specifically requesting that piercing,” said body piercer Dorian Tellez. “It’s rare if a day goes by that I don’t do at least one.”
Daith piercing punctures the ear’s innermost cartilage fold.
