We all suffer from headaches from time to time, but as those living with them will know migranes can be life controlling and often hit like a bolt of lighting from a blue sky. But now a new product on the market, a battery-powered gadget no larger than an electric shaver could bring renewed hope to those suffering.
Studies of the new device, developed by US-based ElectroCore, show that holding it against the neck for 90 seconds at a time may reduce the severity of migrane episodes and even prevent them.
The gadget, GammaCore, works by holding it against the right side of the neck right above the pulse point while it sends out electrical signals.
Could this be a revolution in migrane relief?
