Passing out

Hello everyone I m new to the migraine community. My most recent bout with migraine was, over memorial day. It hit me like a freight train. I woke up, with a screaming headache. Like my head was split in two, felt weak like I was going to pass out. The weather did not help, it rained for 5 days. I was in bed all 5 days. When I got to my Dr, I passed out in her office,2xs. This has never happened before. I felt like I was in like a dream state, my headache Dr,gave me a optical nerve block. I did get releaf in my neck. I’m still having some slight headache. He wants me to have an EEG, which he will discuss, he is Neurologist/headache thankful I’m not alone in this,I’ve, never passes out before. Has anyone ever had Botox for Migraine? He said that he would recommend that for me.

    I’m doing Botox, have had it about a year & 1/2 now, and IT’S WORKING. My migraines are lessened in frequency, and the pain when I have one doesn’t seem as bad.

    I didn’t believe Botox would work, it sounded like voodoo to me – sticking needles all over my face and head and neck and shoulders? Yow.

    The actual shots are uncomfortable, and I find I have to take something for anxiety prior to my appointments. Taking a pain pill pre-emptively helps, too. You look like you have been stung all over your face afterwards — sometimes the needle hits a small vein, so you have dots of blood. This goes away after a day.

    So, basically, I LOVE BOTOX. I feel like standing on a streetcorner and preaching BOTOX to the masses. It’s well worth a try, and the manufacturer offers a GREAT rebate program.

    Thank you for all your support. I was hospitalized for severe migraine headaches for 2 days. All my tests were normal,which is good. I had a severe migraine headaches. The vertigo was kicking in. I did get an optical nerve block a week later,which did help. I will not do Botox. I’m going to do a rest study, then a 3 day study at home. Hopefully I can get some answers. Thank you again, thanks for all your support. God bless, much love.

    Hi Sassycat. I just tried Botox last year. Went through 2 sessions with no positive results. But, I would say to any person with chronic migraine, try anything you can because what didn’t help for me may be a relief to you. Good luck, I’m rooting for you!!
