Yes it's every 3 months for me also. I hope you feel better. I suffer from complicated migraine, migraine with aura, and ocular migraines.. it's been a long and painful journey for me, hopefully you'll benefit much more than I have.
I got Botox for my headaches. When I was with the pain clinic they told me point blank that Botox are not for migraines and that they are for tension headaches which I also get nearly every day. They offered me Botox for them and they have reduced the amount I get slightly but as for the migraines it hasn't helped mine at all. I'm so surprised u guys have been give it for migraine prevention as I was told it doesn't help them. I must have been give the wrong information. x
This is the 2nd doctor, Neurologist, I have been to that has suggested it. My old insurance wouldn't pay for it. I was on Topomax for prevention for years. It was the side effects of long term use that ended up being the reason I was taken off of it.
Thanks Pumkin85. I too have complex Migraines. First time I had one I thought I was having a stroke. At this point migraines, in some shape or form, are almost a daily thing.
Be very picky and research the physician doing this because both can migrate and settle out of where it is injected. Proceed with caution I have a friend that had problems after the procedure with her eye lid drooping.
You're welcome geekyfibrogirl. Sorry for the late reply. Yesterday was a very painful day for me. In addition to migraines I also have fibromyalgia, sciatica, and a list of other painful symptoms. Myself personally have got a reduction in the amount of days but the intensity of the migraines are insane . I hope you get relief if you do decide to go with the Botox. God Bless
