I'm a fellow migraine sufferer. I know how debilitating they can be, so you have my sympathy. I found tremendous relief from botox. The only side effect I have is losing the wrinkles on my forehead. It doesn't work for everyone. It decreased my migraines by about 80%. It only makes sense if you get them very often. If you are going to try botox for migraines do NOT go to someone who gives them for cosmetic reasons. They won't have a clue of what they are doing. When I started, about 8 years ago only two places were giving them for migraines (one in NYC and one in LA). Then Dr. Paul Flint at Hopkins in Baltimore started giving them. He is in the department of otolaryngology. But, he is moving to the west coast shortly. You could contact Dr. Flint's office and ask who does it in your area. If you can go to him, do it. He is extremely talented and patient. I hold him in the highest esteem. I hope this helps.
