My Implant


I received my Neuro-Stimulator Implant from The Reed Migraine Center in Dallas, Texas July 18, 2013.  I am so happy I have my implant!!!   Thank you Dr. Bulger!!

I keep my stimulator on 24 hours a day because I have chronic daily migraines.  If I turn it off then I will have a migraine in less than 1/2 hour.  I have 80% of the migraine pain gone.  Which is HUGE!  Going from everyday 24/7 to 80% gone is amazing.

I have 4 leads.  2 leads in my neck and 2 leads over my eyebrows.  I have tingling in my head 24 hours a day.  I can adjust each lead individually too.  Which is huge because sometimes with migraines one side of my head is having worse pain.  I haven’t had any pain in the back of my head since the stimulator has been turned on.  I have had a few chargers break and then it’s back to the emergency room.

The trial is easy and best way to determine if this implant will work for you.  I know some people who only have an Occipital Nerve Stimulator (ONS) but mine is more than that.  I have 2 leads over the occipital nerves and 2 leads over my eyebrows over the Supra Orbital nerves.  I definitely would not have relief if I only had the ONS.  I’m always happy to answer any questions if you email me.

I wish everyone had the opportunity to do this to see if would get rid of their pain.

It is not a cure!  Please know if you do this that it is not a cure.  It masks the migraine pain.  My implant has been a key stepping stone in figuring out the cause of my migraines.  As of April 12, 2017, I still get 80% relief and an very happy I have it.  As you can see on my blog I finally after 19 years of daily migraines have determined the cause of my migraines in 2015., Lyme Disease and many co-infections.

If you have had this implant or a different one for your migraines I would love to hear how you are doing.  Also, please check out Neural Therapy because you may need to treat your scars.
