I recently began receiving Botox injections for my migraines. I have been suffering with migraines since the age of 13 years old, so all of my adult life. I am now 51 years old. My neurologist stated after trying everything else, why not Botox. I was also recently diagnosed with stomach ulcers, so no more anti-inflammatory meds to treat my headaches. Yesterday I had to leave work because the pain was almost unbearable. A couple of weeks ago I was seen in the ER due to migraine pain. It seems as though the Botox injections are making my migraines so much more intense and the pain is greater than ever before. I am interested to know whether anyone else has experienced this issue with Botox? I am within 3 years of retirement and often wonder what will happen if I continue to leave or miss work on FML due to migraines. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
