A Few Hundred to Several Hundred

Am I to understand that the range for Botox for Migraine is a Few Hundred (is that $200?) to Several Hundred (is that up to $999) I'm having a hard time understanding the difference between a "few" and "several" Please enlighten me. Being a person who is careful with my money I guess the concern is the cost compared to the value of the outcome. I strongly dislike word like few and several because use to describe the potential cost of a treatment, which according to what I read is somewhat painful. Up to thirty shots or so, here and there around the face, head and neck. If that is goinga to be painful, I certainly want to know how painful it's going to be on my budget. I have suffered for many years with chronic migraine and now my salvation is imitrex. One little pill and a head ache is gone. No pain except the cost during those periods of time when I didn't have insurance coverage. It was always cheaper to have the pill around than to miss a day of work or an activity of my daughter"s. I have often wondered where they came up with the idea that 9 pills a month was a good number. Never have gotten an answer for that. But here I am typing this and still alive in spite of taking tweny pills a month and sometimes more. Only negative I have is that the pillls do take a bit of time to work. The injections I took originally worked much faster, but there was the trade off that I hurt and the injection site. I think I'll stick with the pills, thank you very much, Dr. Shelton
