Has Anyone Used Or Are Using Botox Treatments To Get Rid Of Chronic Migraines.

I have finally seen a migraine specialist and he has recommended Botox injections to reduce my 24/7 chronic migraines.
I truly appreciate any feedback on this including side effects if any.

I have had Botox injections for migraines for probably a year so it's every 3 months it's about 32 shots just under your skin all the way around your crown and down each side of your neck and I don't like needles!! but to have no headache (it lasted 9 weeks) was wonderful!!! Thank God my insurance pays for it! Then we had a problem -we've changed my insurance a little with the new contract and I didn't have it for months and I suffered! I just had it two weeks ago again! God is good!! Go for it!

I used to do botox, but had a bad reaction to the second set, that put me in the hospital.
However, it works wonders for most people.

P.S. I drove myself there after work and put an ice pack on when I left -no big deal! And I'm a real baby when it comes to needles -I just close my eyes and I don't look and I dig my nails into the palms of my hand! But it's really not that bad! That's it got to go!
