Still, the idea that technology holds the solution to foregoing these regular occurrences, well, I’m all for that. Scientists at Ohio State University have
developed a device called the TMS. By briefly creating an electromagnetic field, TMS is supposed to disrupt migraines in what’s called the “aura phase,” before the headache actually occurs. In a small study, 69% of those who tried TMS reported that they ended up with little or no pain, as opposed to 48% of a placebo group. The TMS may also be successful in treating noise and light sensitivity and nausea.
Which means I’ll be bringing one of these with me next time somebody makes me sit through a sappy chick flick.
