Most sufferers of brutal migraine and cluster headaches are all too familiar with the warning signs of an approaching attack, but a California biotech company says it has created a device that can potentially stop the crippling pain as easily as flicking a switch.

I would believe it if and when it works on my migraines---which are off the chart, pain wise.

Not too sure though if I would allow it based on this:The device is inserted into a group of nerves, called the sphenopalatine ganglion, situated behind the nasal passages and eye sockets, Papay said.

Also How much the therapy will cost has not been determined. Curious to see the cost.
