Six million people in the UK suffer from migraines, but painkillers are not always effective.
Debbie Hounslow, 44, a customer services adviser from Buckinghamshire, underwent a new procedure.

THE PATIENT

'It was an excruciating pain, like my skull was being crushed,' said Debbie Hounslow of her migraines
My migraines started when I was 18. My left eye developed blind spots, then I saw flickering lights and a really bad headache came on.

It was scary, but my Nan and Mum had migraines so I knew what it was.

My GP advised me to take over-the-counter painkillers if another came on.

I would have a couple a year, but in my early 30s they started coming every few months. They were much more intense and lasted from one to three days.
