A daith piercing is a piercing through the fold of cartilage near the center of the ear. Daith piercing is said to make use of an acupuncture pressure point to reduce fibromyalgia symptoms and migraines in some people. It has not been studied for effectiveness, but many with fibro are discussing the pros and cons of getting their own daith piercing.

Here are some conversations about the daith piercing:
• Did you try getting a daith piercing yet? I have one ear done so far... but it has helped so much! Within the year I had it I went from weekly/sometimes 2/3days in that week with migraines to less than 5 in the whole year.
Can you relate?
