I still have daily headaches and weekly migraines on my current preventative meds. Multiple neurologists have suggested that I try botox or aimovig, but I have a severe needle phobia. Every time I have to get a shot my anxiety levels shoot through the roof the night before so that I can’t sleep or eat, by the morning of and by the time I’m at the doctor’s office I’m crying, trying not to hyperventilate, and in so much pain from the inevitable migraine that hyperventilating until I pass out actually sounds appealing. This isn’t something that I can push-through by clinging to the idea that one of these treatments might succeed where years worth of other options have failed. Has anyone experienced this level of needle phobia and still managed to attempt these treatments? If so, how did you do it?
