So after 4 months I finally had to give up. I had my husband remove my piercing the other day because it had gotten extremely infected. this is probably because I have to sleep on my left side which is the same side I get migraines on. And when I get a migraine (this happens 1-2 times a day) I have to jam the cool side of a squishy pillow into my eyeball while laying on my left side. And I constantly have to flip the pillow to keep it cool. my ear had gotten so painful it seemed to make the migraines worse and it felt like I had an inner as well as outer ear infection. I did my saltwater cleanses daily but finally couldn't take it anymore. I hope those of you that have them are having great success! I get my second round of botox next month. Hoping to find some relief with this round. I'm going to ask my neurologist about the occipital nerve block tho. That sounds like it would work better for my symptoms. My scalp on left side gets hypersensitive during migraine and the pain goes from my left eye and nostril/sinus all the way back to my neck. And only on left side. Indiana weather certainly doesn't help at all. I swear our weather is bipolar! Thoughts or suggestions are welcome!
