For many people, migraines – those severe headaches that lay you flat – are the bane of their lives. There’s no cure for them, and over-the-counter pain relief medicines don’t always do the trick. That’s why our readers got so excited in December when we brought them news about a new Israeli neuro-modulation device that stimulates nerve branches in the brain that regulate pain and mood. The rechargeable device, called Neurolief, may look like something out of Star Trek, but studies of the product show an 80 percent reduction in pain symptoms – double the rate of implanted devices. The new device is likely to retail for less than $500, but it will take a while longer before it hits the market.
