Have had Botox A several times and while it helps migraines/tension headaches/Chiari headaches post-surgery, the effects are short lived (1-2 months). Getting Botox B tomorrow to see if it will be better.
Yes I had 33 Botox injections and it made my migraine horrendously worse!
I've had it for awhile. But seems my severity of migraines almost every day/night is starting back.
I have been getting botox for over a year, i still get migraines, but i have not been to the hospital since . Since i been getting botox i am now able to catch them before they become bad ... i will take that !!
I have been getting botox for about three years now, faithfully every three months. If i get a bruise its tiny ans he administers the injections with such preciseness the pain is minimal compared to migraines. I am all but migraine free. It is liquid gold to me.
Dropped from daily to 1-4 a month average. I've had botox injections the last 3yrs. The first time was amazing. As with anything with migraines mine are chronic and daily basis since 2006, so the triggers and effect are always changing saying this the injections had to be changed as well. Where they were injected the first time didn't work as to where they were injected the next time. Mine has to be done every 2-3 months. I have no insurance so it's sometimes hard to come up with the money. I also take Topamax for preventative. Watch my triggers always looking and scoping out the new triggers. All in all of course I still get migraines but Thank God they are not what they were or as often. Life is much better with botox and topamax as for the cost I will do what I can as long as I can and that's all any of us can do.. I'm going today to try the Daith ear piercing. Who knows it just may be another preventative to add to the list, if not maybe it will grow back! Blessings to all that endure this horrific pain and just pain in the backside!
The first time I tried boric injections for my chronic migraines....my neck head and back hurt more for the first few days before it sent back to normal severe neck .. Upper back muscle pain...that I have delt with for almost 5 years now with no relief. But have done three injections for my chronic migraines And no more extreme neck..back..head pain. It only lasts one month of no migraines just regular minor headaches which I'll take than migraines every day.
It works for me not only for migraines but TJM. I suffer from polymyositis a muscle disorder that affected vmy speech, body movement including bmy facial muscles. I can't describe how immediately works on my jaw and facial muscle improving my speech as well. I can smile more and relax my all my facial expressions.
I have been getting Botox for chronic migraine for about a year and a half now. I have had varied results every time. It depends on the time of year. It seems to be less effective during the winter because the high altitude that I live at makes my migraines worse especially when there are frequent barometric pressure and temperature changes. I was diagnosed with myofascial pain syndrome and the Botox helps with the muscle spasms I get on my scalp.
