Default Chronic Migraines

Has anyone out there had botox for migraines? I have chronic, daily migraines caused by severe hydro and vp shunt. I had botox for migraines as a last option and I had terrible headaches (even worse than before) for 3 weeks. It gave me some relief, and now it's time for the injections again, but I'm so afraid of the initial worsening of headaches. Has anyone had this?

Hi, What a terrible thing to be dealing with.

I've had few migraines but MANY headaches, especially when I was working. My boss bought Ibuprofen for me the way he bought sugar for everyone else's coffee.

Some years ago I learned that low vitamin B12 can cause headaches and even migraines.

If you have low B12, it might be a part of the problem.

I think I'd get sublingual methylcobalamin and try that before I did another Botox treatment.

I use the 5mg ones. But, I'm tall and not thin. I was using 5 a day, but now that I switched to organic food I seem to need a lot less to keep away the many symptoms of low vitamin B12.
