So I’ll try to make this short. I had 4 treatments of Botox by May of 2020. I was down to 10-12 migraines a month, which was 50% less migraines for me. We then moved and new job and new insurance = new doctor. The new hospital required me to try Xeomin first which ended up being a bust for me. I now have been on Botox again since November and I’m having my 4th treatment in a few days. Before April, I was finally seeing a reduction in migraines. Since the 3rd treatment in April, it’s been awful. Two days after the last treatment, I was extremely fatigued, lightheaded, nausea and a headache every day for 2 weeks. I also had a different provider do my treatment, who happens to be a PA. (I hardly ever see an actual neurologist at this hospital and most of my treatments are done by an NP.)
My question is has anyone else had side effects like these and have you noticed more migraines or side effects if you have a different provider? I’ve had 20+ migraines since the treatment in April and I’m actually much worse than before I started Botox. I’m scared to have another Botox treatment, especially since my daughter’s wedding is happening 3 weeks after my next treatment.
Any experiences would be so helpful.
