Migraine is a common form of headache that
is associated with symptoms such as sensitivity to light, noise and feeling of sickness. Migraine
headaches can be very debilitating in some patients. Botox injection for migraine Botulinum toxin is believed to inhibit the
release of certain pain chemicals, resulting in a knock-on effect on the pain processing
systems that generate migraine headaches. For migraine treatment, a small amount of
botulinum toxin is injected into various muscles in the forehead, temples, back of the head
and the neck. The injections may take up to a week to become
effective and pain relief can last up to 3 months or longer, though this may not always
be the case.

  1. Migraine is not a headache. Headaches can be cured with aspirin or paracetamol. Migraine is a neurological disease of which there is no cure. I've been having the Botox injections for over a year now and definitely felt a significant different after the 3rd round. You may get a protracted migraine on Day2-4 after the treatment, but will benefit from it in the long run. The frequency and severity of migraine attacks generally goes down for most people but you'll still get the occasional one that puts you in bed for a day or so. So not a cure, but worth trying if offered.

  2. You're supposed to give incredibly specific locations of your pain as well. So they're not just stabbing wildly. My pain management guy (who is like my patron saint. Took me in when I was still 14 God bless him) tells me "one treatment every three months." It burns super bad for 2 days afterwards, then I get bad sensitivity or a migraine everywhere but where the injections were, then I'm totally fine. I've tried absolutely everything. Name a narcotic: done, Homeopathy: probably tried it, OTC nsaids, even things like injectables, nasal sprays, self medication, and blocks/hospitalization. But the ~30 botox injections along with my normal course of meds has basically turned my quality of life from counting minutes to not caring. Spending 25/30 days in bed to actually wanting to go outside. I still have to go to Urgent Care at times. And I've only had one migraine that I've deemed "worse than before I started taking meds," but it's taken 7 different doctors and 5 years for them to decide Botox. I love modern medicine.
