I have been suffering from migraines for about 20 years or so, Most currently, I have had a migraine virtually everyday since March 2012...it is now 09/1/2012. Just like most migraineurs, I have spent countless hours in the emergency room trying to stop the cyles of migraines. I see a chiropractor (biggest waste of two thousand dollars EVER) on the upside the back pain that I have experienced daily for the past 16 years is getting better. So I can't be totally made at the Chiropractor. The first Neurologist, in the course of 4 months tried me on 2 different preventatives (topomax and zonegrain) both were an epic failure. His next suggestion was to go to a headache clinic out of state...with a small child, husband and job, this was just unrealistic. I then began seeing another nuerologist. I hade nerve block injections done on both sides right at the base of the skull. Then he stared me on botox treatments. I was a little freaked out about it at first. The thought of all (32) injections in my head had me wanted to run for cover. But then I figured...what's the worse thing that could happen...give me a headache...no biggier there, I have them daily. I have only been through one course. I have about a week and a half to determine if the full effects from the botox will really work. I keep saying life can only get better from here...I am at the bottom of the barrell already, things cannot get any worse.
