I was recently prescribed the eneura tms spring device for migraine management. It is wonderful it reduces pain and sometimes even arrests a migraine attack . 

After spending an average of 13 days monthly in a dark room in agony with severe migraine for 18 years when nothing else works as it didn't in my case I recommend you try this amazing device.

i have seen migraine specialists, neurologists, alternative health practitioners etc  etc etc and had awful side effects from potent  medicine which didn't work, and also gave me over use daily headaches too. This is not a a miracle cure but it definitely helps to reduce pain and keep it at a far more manageable level.

check out spring tms manufactured by eneura! For me it has been a Godsend!

    Hi Summermaiden, Your story completely mirrors mine except I've had them over 40 years starting when I was about 8.  I have now given up with the medical world and am just fumbling along on my own in the hope they will eventually disappear as I get older.  I will definitely look into this device, never heard of it, but anything is worth a go smile

      Keep trying! Don't give up.  I have had daily migraines for 13 years--they always worsen toward the end of the day and some days I reallly don't want to be around anymore--I'm too old for this (78).  Will look into anything that's recommended, because everyone is different and what works for one person is totally ineffective for another.  Example:  two Botox injections--I'm done.  One day at a time.....

      The device helps reduce daily migraines which are a result of too much medication. In my case it was overuse of solphadeine  which I have managed to virtually stop, so it has radically reduced the adverse activity in my head and the migraines which are still frequent are no longer daily and the severity is often much lower than before.

    Juat looked up enural and spring TMS.  Mention is made of using it for migraines with aura, which I thankfully don't have.  It sounds better than the Cefaly device which has gotten mixed reviews from other patients.  What do you think?  I meet with yet another neurologis in early Sept. and I want to take this information with me.

    Thanks.  One day at a time!

      I got a prescription for the spring tms from the national migraine centre in london.they are a charity not NHS funded. Their consultants are volunteers. I would highly recommend their service they bend over backwards to help migraine sufferers and have a lot of empathy.

      The NHS doesn't fund it at this stage. The migraine trust can advice you how to get funding or recommend someone in your area who will prescribe it for you they are also very helpful

      Eneura the manufacturer lend the device to you for a three months after that you must apply for funding or pay Yourself.

      three months however is sufficient to get you off of codeine and dispell overuse headache medication daily headaches!!! Good luck!

    This is the second good review I have read about the eneura tms.  I have had daily migraines for 14 years and seen every specialist under the sun.  I have an appointment with a new neurologist in the state whrere I just moved, and I printed off the info on the enura to bring to the neurologist.  Your news is encouraging. Thanks for sharing.

      ThIs is a device that was only mentioned--I went on line to check it out.  I have not tried it yet but will bring the literature with me to my  new neurologist when I visit him early next month.

    That's amazing! Just even to release some pressure of the headache or as my neroligist would say 'fuzziness' .

    I was told this would be next after my meds changing but there is a cost of the machine is that true? You still taking meds with the machine?

    Sorry for all the questions!

    Keep smiling!

      I have virtually stopped taking painkillers I used to take about nine painkillers a day at least 10 days a month and often a lot more than that

      Sometimes 17 days a month now I probably only take about 8 of them the whole month, The device Weighs about 1 kg and it is not that portable unless you're really strong, I usually take the painkillers if I don't have the device with me or I am not close to home

      Yes there is a cost unfortunately ,although the manuturer lends it to you free of charge for a three month period this is long enough to rid yourself of overuse headache medication.

      In the UK I am making an application for NHS funding whether I can succeed or not remains to be seen.

      It is often helpful in the aborting an attack or lessening the severity.I have far less of the daily headaches and migraines that I previously suffered and whilst it is by no means a miracle cure it is definitely a very helpful device for us desperate migraine sufferers ,it can be a godsend and help to read us of the horrendous side-effects of pain relief that we suffer in conjunction with migraines so good luck
