Emilie and her family describe her complete incapacitation due to frequent debilitating chronic migraines. Despite extensive treatment with top specialists, nothing helped and she was relegated to almost continually staying in her room with the lights out. Her parents then contacted Reed Migraine Centers to have her evaluated for the Reed Procedure, a permanent surgical migraine treatment. The trial stimulation was a success, but financial concerns prevented her from having the permanent procedure initially. Eventually, Emilie was able to have the permanent stimulator implanted. It changed her life.
Ultimately, Emilie had the 4-Lead procedure peripheral neurostimulator implanted, and she returns nearly a year later to describe her wonderful, fully life-restoring results. Emilie’s parents happily report that their daughter is back to a fully normal life. Emilie is in control of her headaches now.
The Reed Procedure is Combined Supraorbital and Occipital Nerve Stimulation. Learn more about this type of migraine treatment at one of Reed Migraine Centers’ Free Informational Webinars.
It’s been almost a year now since the procedure and I’m doing great. It’s fantastic.
We have our daughter back.
It’s hard to think back on what she was going through, but now she is able to swim. We go to the gym together. We go to the grocery store. We go eat at restaurants. She wears perfume. She eats chocolate. We just celebrated her sweet sixteen.
Anyone suffering from migraine headaches and you are not getting the relief you need, look into the possibilities.
