Long Time of Pain GONE - Pasadena, CA

I've had migraines for over 5 years and they have...

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 to the point where nothing really works anymore and I was leaving & missing work a lot. I've heard of Botox and migraine but thought it was another just another expensive med out there. I was very tired of taking meds everyday. I had an attack at work last month and a co worker told me her sister has severe migraines and she takes Botox three times a year and she seems to be working. I got on google and started a search for the perfect place. Most places told me they only do it for cosmetic purpose. My last call was to Dr Stewart Wang in Pasadena.... And hallelujah they got me in the same day. I got Botox that day and after 6 days later, I tested it by eating spaghetti and no migraine. I've had a headache between then and now but after taking 2 Advil, it was gone. I finally have a life where I feel free and not in constant excruciating nauseating pain. I now enjoy lots of food I couldn't before and I have not had an attack since then. It is a bit expensive but it's worth every penny. I finally found something that works for me and I'll continue to do it every 3 months. For all the migraine suffers out there, I hope you consider going this route. I'm glad I did :)

Dr Wang was very understanding and informative. He made it clear that Botox works for other people and not all. He explained every step of the procedure and walked me through it. He was not only professional but very sympathetic and caring.

So glad you are experiencing results!  Some insurance companies do cover botox for migraines, have you looked into it?  Let us know how long you go migraine free :)
