    Has anyone tried this? It was suggested by the doctor at the latest pain clinic I visited last Friday.

    it has something to do with the nerves of or around the eye ? Why did the doctor suggest it and what do you have to do for it ?

    It's a spinal nerve and the technique is used on migraine patients but was found to also help those with chronic pain. Basically they cut and implant a neurostimulator at the base of the head - and it delivers electrical impulses.

    I have had migraines since I was 11 , so this is doubly good news in case I need to try a new approach for Fibro or my migraines . It sounds interesting. I have a friend who had horrible nerve pain from a back problem . She had a nerve stimulation device implanted and she really loves it.

    Definitely check it out - from all I've read, it works wonders on migraine patients!
