Botox For Headaches

Botox For Headaches

I need help my friends.
Since fibro I started get serve chronic daily migraines and tension headaches plus a new one I think cluster headaches.
My doctor wants me to do botox n my insurance will cover it. But I'm scared to do to it.
I got lidocaine shots in my neck n got kinda sick n had pain for awhile.
I've read that neck pain from other muscles working n headaches r very common side effect n that it's pretty bad. That doesn't sound good.
Has anyone had this done? Any input would be great.… read more

I got a lot of migraines as well. I take Amitriptyline for sleep and pain, but it also helped with my migraines.

so far I have been through one round of Botox injections and I am looking forward to getting the next round because already I can feel the difference in the severity of the migraines and headaches I was experiencing everyday I still have some pain headaches but they are not as bad as they were and by what the dr says with the second set of injections I should be able to see how much of a difference the Botox will make for me. Gentle hugs to all

I know a few people who get Botox injections for migraines every 3-4 months with great results. One of them has MS and had migraines every day. She now only gets 2-3 per month and has had no side effects from the injections. Botox has also been approved for back pain, supposedly, so I do want to check into that since I was able to drastically reduce my migraines with dietary and sleep changes. It is miserable to live with frequent migraine. I used to get 22-25 per month, but now typically get closer to 10 per month. I fix those with Maxalt. Personally, I would give it a try! You don't have much to lose and so much to possibly gain. There are side effects, but that is also true with the medications.
