Never have experienced ANY bad side effects from Botox - only 1 syringe used - I think that is 20 units (not certain). Botox takes effect after approximately 2 days (everyone... READ MORE

My migraines started at age 13. I have suffered many years of severe headaches and migraines. The headaches were a daily things for me. It became very wearing on me. It was difficult to concentrate or focus on anything. I have seen many doctors for this with no avail. I was put on many... READ MORE

NO MORE HEADACHES! Also, my forehead looks smoother and tighter. I'm only 22 so I didn't really have any wrinkles yet, but I squint/furrow my brow constantly and it was giving me me tension headaches. It also was surely going to give me wrinkles prematurely. My older sister actually suggested... READ MORE

I went to many surgeons in the area. I am only 32 and had some mild creasing between my forehead, and recurring headaches due to frowning (I am near sighted, and squinting/frowning while driving would leave me with terrible tension headaches). The surgeons I visited were pushy about the amount... 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. 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

I am so happy, I am doing great, i've had a few Migraines but they were not as bad... 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 thought I was literally going to die. The headache decreased a small amount daily but in crept... READ MORE

Dr. Mohammed Alghoul is an amazing surgeon. I have suffered for 4-5 years with severe lightning bolt head pain in the back and side of my head.
