When I started writing my blog, I hoped I would help to reach just one other person with Trigeminal Neuralgia and offer them a bit of comfort, but I’m actually saddened to see that my most popular post, which pulls in views from all over the world every day, is my post about the miracle cure piercing for headaches, the daith piercing, through a piece of middle cartilage on your ear.
I wanted my blog to reach someone who may need to know they’re not alone, but, in turn, it has also reached a lot of people who are desperate for a cure wherever they can find it, so it breaks my heart to write an update and tell you all that it didn’t work.
I wasn’t expecting a piercing to cure my headache, because my headache and facial pain is caused by a nerve in my brain that is playing up. The cartilage that the daith piercing passes through is actually an acupuncture point for your feet, I believe. I don’t know whether people are thinking themselves better, whether it’s actually require placebo effect or whether it’s different for people who suffer from migraines, but a piercing will not cure trigeminal neuralgia or any kind of neuralgia. If it was as simple as a quick piercing, there wouldn’t be such thing as the ‘suicide disease’, instead it would just be facial pain that could be quickly cured by a trip to your local pierce artist.
I hope if you’re reading this, you’re having a pain free day and I hope this saves you wasting your money and time on a quick fix cure. However, this piercing is super cute, so it can’t hurt (pun intended!) to get it done anyway if you think it’s as adorable as I do!
