Peripheral Nerve Stimulator Migraine Treatment Allows Return to Full Activities

|

With the stimulator, I can do stuff.

Back then, with the headaches, I’d go out for just one activity, then I would have to go home because my headache was really bad. [I’d] go home, take something, and go to sleep because that was my relief.

Now I can do a day, a half-day, go to the mall, have lunch, do something with friends and family.

Peripheral Nerve Stimulator Migraine Treatment Gives Janice Her Life Back

|

The day we had to go see him, I had one of my worst blown-out headaches…. Dr. Reed walked into the room, and he said, “Mrs. Daugherty?” and I said, “Yes, sir.” I don’t even recall looking up at him. He saw the pain I was in. He didn’t ask my history, didn’t ask about what doctors I have been to, didn’t ask what medications. He just looked at me and said, “Mrs. Daugherty, I’m going to help you.” And it was just like, this is the miracle I have been waiting for.

Headaches Finally Controlled by Occipital Nerve Stimulation Migraine Treatment

|

The most important thing I think that stands out about Reed Migraine is the people that work there… Every person you talk to from the second you walk in the door to the second you leave. Every nurse, every doctor, every person that calls on the phone, the people who deal with insurance, I have never had a bad moment with them.

[Dr. Reed] was very straightforward about exactly what would be happening with the trial and with the surgery and what his other patients had experienced. He just made me feel, even though I knew he was about to stick wires in my head, he made me feel really relaxed and reassured about the experience.

Nerve Stimulator Migraine Treatment Allows Dedicated Educator to Return to the Classroom

|

Dr. Reed was a Godsend. When I walked into his office, I was really not convinced that I was ever going to have a neurostimulator implant. He spent two hours with my husband and myself. He listened like no one else had. Every symptom that I explained to other neurologists he knew. It was like, for the first time in my life, someone understood what I was telling him. He understood my story. He understood the symptoms. He had heard it all before, which was, in some way, really heartening to know that I wasn’t just an oddball.

Explains How Occipital Nerve Stimulator Migraine Treatment Worked Wonders for His Migraines

|

Going from sitting in a chair, keeping my head still, afraid to move it for fear of a headache, now I can do anything. I’m out in the yard all the time, cutting limbs and gardening, and just whatever, playing with my grandchildren. I can do it all. For several months I was unable to do anything, so it’s just really made a big difference.

I’ve been able to do everything since. I hadn’t hadn’t not a headache in nine years. I didn’t even remember what it felt like, and it felt terrific. The stimulator just feels like someone is massaging my head. My head hasn’t felt this great since I can remember. Dr. Reed has done a miracle.

Reed Procedure Restores Her Life

|

It’s been great because all I do is I turn it up if I get a little bit of a headache, and it goes away. Then, if it gets really bad, I just turn it up to a higher setting and knock it out. For me to be able to play with my son, that’s worth two months of going through trial and surgeries and implants. It’s completely worth it to get to play with my son. I haven’t had any limitations.

After the Reed Procedure Mike is Headache Free and Returns to Boating

The trial was supposed to be for a week. I didn’t need that week for the trial. As soon as they turned it on within seconds, I was like, “wow, is this what normal feels like?” I didn’t understand. It took me a little while to comprehend, to understand what it was like not to have that headache on a daily basis.
