Migraine without aura (common migraine)

What is it?

This is an irritation or inflammation of the occipital nerve. The sharp pain is like a burn or electric shock, travelling from the top of the neck to the crown of the head. It starts at the cervical spine and is generally caused by arthrosis, lesions secondary to an accident (whiplash), etc. This type of neuralgia is not very common and is often confused with migraine when the pain starts in the occipital region.


Is indicated when attacks are frequent (several times a month). Cefaly’s effectiveness will first and foremost be preventative in order to significantly reduce the frequency of migraine attacks. It can also reduce pain during an attack.
