So i had Botox for my migraines 2 weeks ago. and id like to post a quick "progress" report..
after the first 12 hours my head itched like crazy and i felt the onset of a migraine, i was warned this was a common side affect, for the next 3 days i had a pretty savage migraine even by my standards..
then it dissipated. for the next couple of days i would get a 3 to 4 hour migraine around the same time every day. since then my head has been clear.. i have not had a headache, the slightest twinge of migraine and to be honest it feels strange after 12 years of a weekly migraines lasting 4 days+. i am quite nervous at the moment and am expecting a migraine any day, this is only because it is what normally would happen, im trying to relax and not think about it as knowing my luck i will give my self a migraine by stressing about the fact i dont have one !!! typical but on the whole so far the botox has been a success .. i will make another post in 2 weeks, i have to go back to headache nurse in 12 weeks for a second treatment and i have to keep a detailed migraine diary.. which most of you sufferers will be most acquainted with im sure
all the best to you sufferers out there and heres to clear head and pain free life
