Migraines since concussion

I am a 42-year old female with daily chronic migraines. I sustained a concussion 8 years ago and since then have been experiencing regular migraines. It has had a significant impact on my life. I no longer work and the headaches effect my day to day living and quality of life.

Some treatments come with temporary relief, including Maxalt, Nortryptaline and Botox injections. The problem with the latter is it only lasts two months and then the third month in between treatments is worse than average. I’m trying to decide if it’s worth it. Nortryptaline worked wonders for a year and then it stopped working. Maxalt works great for my extreme headaches (9/10) but nothing seems to work for the everyday 6/10 pain migraines. I just purchased the Cefaly and am awaiting its arrival. I also have Fibromyalgia which doctors believe was triggered by the concussion.
