After 40 years of dealing with migraines thru different methods, and was finally worn out from drugs masking effects and putting me in a continual fog, went to see Dr. Khorsandi on cost of Botox, he introduced us to migraine decompression surgery. His experience had shown that there is no reason... READ MORE

I tried botox as a last result for chronic migraines. The day after the botox treatment I had a migraine for 2 days all day long, along with a stiff neck. The stiff neck continued for three days with no relief except for taking a muscle relaxant at night but then I would wake up still with a... READ MORE

I start Botox injections tomorrow morning. I am 49 years old, and have had migraines since I was 20 years old. I feel as if I've tried everything possible to alleviate these monsters.

This was the second time I received the botox TX for migraines. The first time was in 2009 when it wasn't approved yet. It was a better experience and seemed to help somewhat.

I was given approx 100 units of Botox for treatment of chronic migraines. I was not warned in advance about any potential long term side effects. Within 24 hours I had the worst headache of my life. I thought I was literally going to die. The headache decreased a small amount daily but in crept... READ MORE

Of coarse, I loved my Botox injections. I could go months without migraines, this was great and addictive. I've had the same Cosmetic Surgeon giving me Botox for 9yrs every 6mos. Mostly good results. Every now and then we'd miss a spot even though she targets the same spots every time.... READ MORE

Weekly migraines motivated me to try Botox. It was a very painful procedure, I did not read many others on how painful the actual shots were???

I first read about Botox for Migraines about 5 years ago. As someone who has suffered horrible, debilitating migraines that last for days at a time for the last 18 years, and who has tried everything to no avail, I was intrigued. But no doctors in my area offered this service- at least without... READ MORE
