Getting Tired

Just looking for any fellow Migraine sufferer that has tried Botox injections. I have tried many preventative drugs, and have had Botox injections now for over a year. I do not see any improvement. I am due for my next round of Botox in two weeks, and I am not sure that I want to get them. I was so hopeful that Botox was going to help reduce my migraines. I am running low on hope. It has been 18 years since my first Migraine. My neurologist said a high percent of women have reduced or no migraines after menopause. Well, after waiting all these years and finally going through it, I am getting a sinking feeling as my migraines are getting worse! Zomig has saved my life, but I don’t want to depend on that, as I am getting older (55) and have stroke and heart disease in my family.
My family tries to understand but as I look to the future, I do not want to be physically unable to do the things I want in retirement!
