So I have suffered from migraines for over two decades. I was diagnosed at the age of 9. I suffer from chronic migraines with 20+ headaches per month. In the past year, (after being on Botox injections since 2011) I have started noticing issues surrounding cognitive functioning. Some days I have trouble saying words, trouble completing thoughts, trouble concentrating/focusing, and trouble effectively communicating. Typically these days occurs either during s migraine cycle or right before/after one. Last year this time I was starting to think this was occurring as a long term side effect for being on the Botox. In speaking with my Neuro, he was adamant that this was not a side effect of Botox but that it is common for chronic migraine sufferers. He also stated that there wasn’t anything I could do to prevent or lessen severity/frequency. I have been off the Botox, (to rule out Botox being a contributor) since December of last year. I have noticed a slight decrease but nothing that would lead me to believe that it was definitively the Botox. Has anyone else experienced this? If so, what was cause (if known)? Has anyone found anything that would help combat this? I’m desperate at this point because it’s starting to affect me professionally. Thanks for reading!
