Got Botox yesterday


Recommended Posts

I got Botox yesterday for my Chronic Migraines. It went well :) My neuro said it could work straight away or take a few days/weeks to notice any difference.

Last night was the first night since Oct 12 when I didn't have a migraine :)

It was only 31 injections across injection sites in my forehead, temples, back of head/neck and shoulder blade area. It wasn't painful just more like a mild discomfort.

Have go to back in another 3 months for another session, then will know after that if it works or not. If it works then we continue every 3 months. If not then it stops.

Thanks everyone xxx One thing I didn't mention is that my GP exhausted all drug routes before referring me to my neuro. He in turn exhausted all other drugs and I got 2 different nerve blocks which didn't work. Botox was the only next option.

Nimrodel: my neuro is the best in NI

Fire Starter: yeah I tried that, it doesn't work for Chronic Migraine though.
