    Migraine sufferers who wore the band for 20 minutes a day saw headache days reduce from seven to five a month
    Around one in four women and one in 12 men experience migraines
    The device costs around £260 and is available in Europe

    The device - which 'looks like something out of Star Trek' - delivers electric impulses to the supraorbital nerve that controls sensation in and around the eye.

    A study found those who used it were suffering about a third fewer debilitating headaches after a couple of months.

    I've only had a few migraines in my lifetime, thank goodness. Awful things....I just wanted a cool dark room and why did my pillow feel like it was made of concrete? A good device if it works...less side affects from pills.

    I can't help it.....must make Star Trek joke.....'Beam my headache up Scotty.'
