A new type of electronic device is designed to provide relief for migraine pain. The device is called TMS, which has been designed to stop migraine pain even before it begins.
According to a recent study, TMS has been found to be effective in treating the pain when used at the onset of migraine.
Earlier, it was assumed that migraines were caused by vascular constriction that resultant in aura—commonly known as electrical storms in the brain, followed by vascular dilation that resulted in severe pain.
However, in the late 1990s, studies revealed that migraine pain is caused by to neuronal electrical hyperexcitability. TMS is based on this new understating of the migraine mechanism and works by interrupting the aura phase of the migraine.
