    Hey guys,

    So I had my helix pierced yesterday and all night i had pain around the lower part of my head that wouldnt go away. It was so low at first i thought maybe i'd slept strangely on my neck but now i've realised its a headache. Is this normal and will it gradually ease off as my body gets used to the new piercing? Im only asking because it literally kept me awake for most of last night and i can still feel it now.

    I wouldn't worry about it too much! I've had loads of piercings done and it is a different experience every time.Everyone reacts differently to piercings and a headache falls well under the normal side effects. Just stay hydrated as to ease up the headache and you should be golden by tomorrow.
