It seems someone is working on a gun-like device to short-circuit migraines as they're developing.

No magic bullet will cure your migraines, but how about a magic gun?

If all goes according to plan, migraine victims will one day be able to put a gun-like device to their heads and fire magnetic pulses into their skulls, stopping the migraines before they develop. Right now, that plan is in the early stages of clinical testing.

Dr. Adrian Upton, head of neurology at McMaster University in Hamilton, is working with U.S. inventors on making such a device available publicly.

Four years ago, with the help of American inventor Robert Fischell and his son, Doug, Upton came up with the idea of using a machine to disrupt the electrical activity that causes a migraine as it travels through the brain, effectively cutting off a headache before it starts.
