Other Outcome Measures:
  • Safety [ Time Frame: Over the treatment and follow-up periods ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    The safety endpoint is to further characterize the safety profile of the NMS E-Box through the collection and evaluation of adverse events. The occurrence of adverse events will be compared between arms.

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Adult ≥ 18 and ≤ 65 years of age females or males;
  2. Willing to participate in the study and to complete all study-related procedures, evaluations, and headache diaries;
  3. Able to understand, agree to, and sign the study's IRB-approved informed consent form;
  4. Has a physician-made diagnosis of Chronic Migraine as defined by the following (a, b, and c):

    1. Headache (tension-type and/or migraine) lasting a minimum of 4 hours on ≥15 days per month for at least 3 months and on ≥XX (redacted by sponsor to preserve integrity of study) days in the 30 days prior to the Screening Visit;
    2. Headaches on ≥8 days per month for at least 3 months that have fulfilled the following:

    i. Headaches with at least two of the following:

    • unilateral location;
    • pulsating quality;
    • moderate or severe pain intensity;
    • aggravation by or causing avoidance of routine physical activity (e.g. walking or climbing stairs);

    ii. AND at least one of the following:

    • nausea and/or vomiting;
