Hi my name is Debbie and I live in Ireland. I have had severe migraines for many years. I am 48. For the past year I have been receiving Botox treatments which have given me a new lease of life. Instead of the 3/4 days a week in bed with severe migraine I now have approx one day in bed.
Although I still get hum dingers, I can manage the lesser pain migraine myself with no GP or hospital intervention. My last botox injections were four weeks ago and I found it did not work as well as the others. I have spent from Wed to Sun in bed, 24 hours round the clock (no movement as pain gets worse) only keeping some cereal down and weak tea and water.Has this happened to anybody else as I have put all my faith in Botox.
For 10 years I have to try all other meds before I was offered botox because of the cost, although I have to pay to see the neurologist but my insurance pays for the actual medication. I would be very grateful to hear from anybody and if you have any tips I could try.
