Migraines can be more than a headache... many sites have info. on understanding, treatment options, etc.
some excellent sites :
check out Overiew section.
"treating pain disorders w/ intradermal Botox" (link to this article from Magnum -migraines.org/treatments, cited above) is of interest. Has anyone tried??
My nuero has suggested Botox and I'm now considering since my insurance has approved.
I 've had migraines since teen but now getting "other" headaches--daily & often debilitating. Not sure what kind.... seems several "types"...
I can't take Triptans (Imitrex, zomig, etc) Fiorecet did help but not now....
Have had cluster headaches (horrible) --was given IM Toradol at ER .
Have also tried some other prophylactics, like Topomax, which did help years ago but couldn't tolerate when tried again recently.
Am wondering if Botox may be a good option...
