If you are suffering from Migraines and have tried numerous types of medications to no avail, don’t lose hope. Botox could be a possible treatment option for you. That’s right, that Botox. Apparently, there’s more to it than just straightening out wrinkles.
Botox is administered through several shots in different regions such as the forehead, temples, and upper neck. It treats migraines through its ability to lessen muscle contraction and to block chemicals that transmit pain.
Research shows that most patients with chronic migraines have responded well to this treatment. Moreover, only a small percentage of them complained of side effects, which include neck pain, muscular weakness, and drooping eyelids, which are reversible and not serious.
If you experience migraines for fifteen days in a month, your condition can be considered chronic and you will definitely qualify for this treatment. Bring the quality of your life back and try discussing this treatment with your physician. It is best to consult with a doctor first to make sure that Botox is safe and suited for you.
