Migraines can cause excruciating pain and discomfort. Is there a new hope for a non-invasive treatment option?Migraines cause an intense throbbing pain in a particular part of your head and can often bring on other uncomfortable symptoms such as nausea or vomiting, and a strong sensitivity to light and sounds.Often times migraines can last for several hours, causing you to feel like your head is going to explode. Typically, there are three types of treatment options: preventative treatment (stopping the migraines from happening), acute treatment (treating the migraine as soon as it happens) and rescue treatment (dealing with a migraine even after acute treatment doesn't work).What is the new treatment option available that emergency rooms are using?Dr. Robert Fischell holds more than 200 medical patents. His latest invention, the Neuralieve investigational device that uses Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a device that uses electronic waves to treat migraines. This non-invasive treatment option is portable and convenient for whenever your migraine occurs.This device is placed behind your head for less than one minute and has a magnetic pulse that uses a mild electric current targeting the back of your brain, calming your migraine.Could this be the end of your migraine torment?Dr. Fischell explains what migraines are, why some treatment options don't work, and why Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) should be used in every ER to help ease your migranes.
