Mouth tingler implanted in gum to beat the pain of migraines

Migraine affects around one in ten of the UK population

A painkilling device implanted in the gum could be a radical new way to beat migraine pain.

The implant, which is about the size of an almond, is connected to nerves in the face that transmit pain signals during an attack.

When the patient feels a migraine coming on, they hold a remote control handset against their cheek.

Pressing a button then activates the implant, triggering a mild electric current to stimulate the nerves and interrupt the flow of pain signals to the brain.

I think that I would have to be 100% sure that this would work 100% of the time before I had it implanted! Wink
