Hi Ellie,

Welcome! There is a related thread just below yours that answers this very question. I would suggest taking a look.

Many migraineurs have tried it with varying degrees of success (it can be a fantastic tool!). It's effectiveness depends on two overarching factors:

1) you (some people respond to it, others do not)
2)The quality of the practitioner (this varies widely)

Hey thanks - found the thread................
Well I have exhausted all my options and even had one neurologist do the shoulder shrug thing and say sorry I can't help you.
My New family Dr. is going to try and find a clinic that specailizes in hadache and migraine. She suggested the accupunture which I have previously just been considering but now will check into.
Thankyou

Yeah... I would highly recommend getting an appointment with a well regarded headache specialist. They will be able to tell you specifically what type(s) of headache/migraine you have. Different variants often vary somewhat in their preferred treatment method.

Their box of tools (i.e. medications, biologics, medical devises) is also much larger than a general neurologists.

Do you keep a headache journal? Have you been able to identify any of your triggers yet?

Best of luck with with acupunturist!

I went to a acupunturist for almost 3 months and I hate to say it, but I got worse. I have stopped going but I still have the increase of Migraines. shakehead
