Severe motion sickness
While I cannot give you a clinical answer, I can answer this from my personal experience.
I originally got my daith piercing for migraines. I walked into the piercing studio with a migraine and walked out without one. And in total honesty, I have not had ONE migraine since then.
However, I noticed on a recent car trip that I wasn't experiencing the usual motion sickness I have all my life. Normally on windy roads, I get completely sick. I have to look straight ahead and concentrate on the road to try and avoid it. This time, there was none of that. I even tested it out by reading a magazine while riding through a pretty curvy section of the parkway. Not even the slightest bit of nausea whatsoever. This is literally the first time on this particular trip that I haven't gotten sick since I was a child, and I'm now 33.
So, can I say with certainty it was the daith piercing that prevented my motion sickness? No. But I can say that was the ONLY difference in any other time I've done this trip. So to me, I believe it helped with that.
I got a daith piercingfor my migraine, which it fixed. But later that evening, my hubby was playing a video game and and instantly noticed I wasn't getting g motion sick. Generally, any slightest jerk of the camera would make my stomach churn. I watched him for half an hour. Nothing. Not even slightly motion sick. I went on the train the next day, which is usually horrible and I often have to get off early because I get so sick. Again. Nothing. At this point, I've accredited it to my piercings, and did a lot of research where people have said its helped their motion sickness.
Seriously, this is helped me so much. It has also help my anxiety. I'd have all of these obsessive thoughts all the time, couldnt ever full enjoy my time anywhere because of it. I didn't even realize how bad it was until it was gone. I know it's not a placebo effect because I wasn't expecting either of those things to happen. I have tried many different things to help both my anxiety and my motion sickness, and it never worked. I'm not the type to believe in things just based on what the internet says, either. I am simply astonished, still, that this has helped me in so many different ways.
