A DESPERATE mum has revealed she cured a horrendous migraine in 20 minutes – with a plastic food bag clip.
Elizabeth Hayes, from Indiana, had been suffering from a severe headache for 12 hours and said the pain had become unbearable.
But, in a Facebook post she revealed a trick with food bag clip had brought almost instant relief.
She wrote: "This chip clip saved my life tonight. I had a migraine start almost twelve hours ago and about an hour ago it was at an unbearable limit.
"I had exhausted all of my drugs and tricks I usually use to ease my migraines to no avail."
An online search revealed an acupressure-based cure called Aculief – which involves using a plastic clip to pinch the nerves between the thumb and forefinger.
She said: “I glanced at the counter and saw this chip clip and decided it would do about the same thing.
“Within one minute I had some relief, and within twenty my pain was reduced by half!!”
She then went on to order the real thing from Amazon.
She added: “Just wanted to share this with everyone, as I know many of you suffer from migraines also.
What is a migraine?
A migraine is usually a moderate or severe headache felt as a throbbing pain on one side of the head.
Many people also have symptoms such as nausea, vomiting and increased sensitivity to light or sound.
Migraine is a common health condition, affecting around one in every five women and around one in every 15 men. They usually begin in early adulthood.
There are several types of migraine, including:
- Migraine with aura – where there are specific warning signs just before the migraine begins, such as seeing flashing lights
- Migraine without aura – the most common type, where the migraine occurs without the specific warning signs
- Migraine aura without headache, also known as silent migraine – where an aura or other migraine symptoms are experienced, but a headache doesn't develop
Some people have migraines frequently, up to several times a week. Other people only have a migraine occasionally. It's possible for years to pass between migraine attacks.
It’s thought that 190,000 people in the UK suffer from migraine’s every day.
According to Migraine.com said acupressure may help in relieving headaches.
It’s website says: “Some researchers and doctors believe migraines are relieved because the acupressure improves circulation, relieves stress, reduces tension and possibly releases the body’s natural pain killers called endorphins.”
The Aculief clip can be bought at Victoriahealth.com for £19.95.
