Have you ever had a migraine so stubborn and severe, it refuses to respond to any form of treatment? Be it medication, therapy, natural remedy or device, the pain is insatiable and you’ve reached your wits end. What should you do?
Migraineurs generally require 2.5 times more prescription medications and six times more diagnostic tests and services for medical treatment than that of an average individual. In fact, Migraine patients spend about $145 per month in healthcare services compared to non-migraine individuals who average $89 per month.
Migraines are a severe compilation of neurological symptoms that cause debilitating headaches in over 37 million Americans each year. The condition can be classified as chronic migraine syndrome when 15 or more headaches per month are experienced – eight or more of which being migrainous in nature over a three month period.
Reflexology is a system of massage techniques believed to reduce tension and treat illnesses. It is based on the theory that reflex points located in the hands, feet and head are linked by nerves to every other part of the body.
Migraines have been reported in individuals as early as 3,000 B.C. and yet, the condition is still widely underrated and misdiagnosed. But with modern medicine and a recent boom of studies, relief from chronic pain is getting closer.
It looks like something straight out of a Sci-Fi movie; however, the gadget is anything but a figment of imagination. It’s called the Cefaly device and since the FDA’s approval of its use for migraine treatment, the super sleek tiara-like apparatus has been taking the migraine community by storm.
It’s no secret; migraine treatment can be expensive! Without help from insurance, costs can quickly build to an unmanageable amount, which leaves many to ask – what should I do when I can’t afford the help I need?
