According to the FDA, there’s possibly help on the way for those suffering from migraines.

The FDA has just approved a headband, called Cefaly to treat migraines.

The battery operated device is worn on your forehead and delivers small impulses to the nerves.

A company in Belgium developed it.

The device has been shown to reduce the number of chronic migraine attacks on average by two per month, but not the severity of attacks.

The FDA says you’ll need a prescription for the device, and you should only wear it for 20 minutes a day.
