I don't get migraines, but several friends tell me they're ten kinds of Hell, and nothing seems to help. There's new hope. The Associated Press reports, the FDA has approved a new device to help prevent the misery of migraines.

The Cefaly deviceis manufactured by a Belgian company. It's designed to stimulate nerves associated with migraine pain. The device utilizes a battery powered electrode to stimulate those nerves. A headband is worn on the forehead for a maximum of 20 minutes per day. More than half the participants in a survey of 2,300 people said they found the device effective.
