I am at my wits end. Diagnosed with Migraine with aura, HM, and Chronic migraine. I get maybe 5 days a month without any symptoms (Pre, H-pain, Post dromes) and I thinks that is being generous as I just feel exhausted all the time from dealing with...well this life I was handed.
I am currently getting botox every 10 weeks. I have had 3 rounds and I get some of the injections in the jaw. The first two rounds I noticed a slight difference, but this last round it was almost like it exacerbated everything. I have been miserable. Basically it feels like the botox angered every nerve in my head to react.
My question is Do the nerve blocks (SPG, Occitipal, or peripheral) only block the head pain or are they also a pre and postdrome preventative. I have only found research that talks about being pain free but there is not discussion of the pre and post drome- Sure the headache sucks, but so do the pre and post drome.
