  2. I started having migraines when I was 16. At first they where only triggered by heat, by 20 I was more or less disabled. If I wasn’t having a migraine I was having what I called a “mid level” headache or I would have a “low level” headache that could easily last two weeks. Medication options for me where really slim, I was (still am) on an anti-depressant which doesn’t have pain relieveing properties, I also don’t tolerate anti-epileptic medications (I literally get every single common side effect listed), and I have bad IBS which makes Codine bad for me. My neurologist said that botox is the only option left to try. I was not too keen on the idea of having a neurotoxin injected into my face but after much reading I agreed to give it a go. I’ve had four lots with each dose being 12 weeks apart. I was literally in tears after surviving my first very hot summer since 2009 WITHOUT even one migraine. I still get headaches and am still light and heat sensative but I haven’t had a migrain since my first treatment. I’m comfortable to say botox cured my migraines. I would encourage anyone who is able to have botox try it because it can make a world of difference.
