Hey everyone,
 
I saw this article on CNN and I wanted to pass it along.  It seems interesting and promising.
 
 
Peace.

hmm...well, I definitely won't be running to get in line for this. (at least not until more studies are done) The part about this being effective for those with certain "trigger points" will be key. I am very interested to see what else happens with this...

Thanks for posting!!!! I figure any development is great, at least they are focusing and working toward some answers.

Thanks Michelle. :)

I saw this as well. Unfortunately I think it's more geared toward patients with trigeminal neuralgia in particular. In general I think that most headaches that would respond to this procedure would have to be caused by some variety of facial neuralgia which means that candidates would probably be people who've had some positive response to treatments like Botox injections, nerve blocks, or neural stimulators. I hope that it ends up being helpful but I'm doubtful about its chances with conditions like ours. Let me know how things have been going since we spoke last though. I've come up with some new ideas while researching that I think might interest you.
