Treatment News

I found this article from Medical News Today quite interesting. Although it addresses cluster headache not my specific headache, whatever that diagnosis may turn out to be, any news of new treatment options is good news.

I considered having a neurostimulator implanted last year. My insurance denied the claim and I couldn’t afford to proceed. This smaller device implanted orally would make that type of treatment both easier and less expensive.

It hasn’t been approved for use in the U.S. yet. Hopefully they will have few road blocks on the way to approval and their success will inspire others to push for research in this type of headache treatment.

Another article, this time from Head Wise,  points to research started last summer that may lead to portable, non-invasive neurostimulation treatment.

It’s great to see progress being made. I look forward to something working for me!
