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. I get them 3 - 4 days per week. It is rare that a migraine lasts for just a few hours or even half a day. ... READ MORE

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 got a few less migraines and the majority of the botox was in my face and traps along my back. I decided to try... READ MORE

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

I have had migraines my entire life. Since I was a small baby, and so far nobody knows why. I tried Botox for migraines about 6 years ago. It was done by a neurologist.

Yes there is help out there. I've had Botox every 90 days at the cleveland clinic for 2 years. I was getting more than 20 migraines a month now - maybe 1 every 83 days. The last week Botox does wear off though. It has changed my life. I'm happy a great mom and wife again. Thank you. Helped first... READ MORE

For 7 years I had nearly constant migraines. I tried every medication possible in that time. After two years of debating with myself I finally tried Botox for migraines a week and a half ago.

I have suffered from migraines since I was 13 years old, I finally decided to try botox and I can't believe it took me this long. Not only do I look incredibly refreshed but my menstrual cycle is no longer as painful. Didn't wait long at all and the waiting room area was very relaxing and welcoming. READ MORE

I've had migraines for over 5 years and they have been frequent and worse last year. The pain gets to the point where I can't function and my left or right side goes numb. I've tried all the migraine meds out there but they would only work for a couple of hours.( I've even tried Percocet). I got... READ MORE

I received Botox injection at a local med spa. I explained to her exactly where my pain was central. she started injections at my main points of pain and completed my procedure on the other side of my face for ascetics and symmetry. She was not a neurological doctor, but understood as she is a... READ MORE

I am the CFO of a leading electronics company. I have a lot of stress at work, needless to say. I was suffering from major migraines and facial pain every day.

I had the fortune of getting Botox for my migraines from a military neurologist. At least I didn't have to worry about credibility of the facility and the doctors.
