Migraine Aging

I am a 68 told women and have had migraines since I was 16. Back then there was nothing to take but excedrin. My mom had them and called them sick headaches. I am so sick of headaches. I wouldn't wish this on anybody. I thought that after menopause they would stop but no still get but not as often. I take Maxalt which does help but am looking into botox shots. I have been to so many neurologists and they don't listen to you. The first thing they do is to put you on supplements- have tried them for years and no help but they insist you take them. It's a waste of time. I also now have an aneurism behind my right eye that they found in 2004. I just want to be headache free.
