Well, it’s that time again! I seriously feel like I blink and it’s Botox time again 🙁
It’s been 12 weeks since my last dose of Botox to treat my migraines, so back to the neuro I go, for another 40 injections in my head, neck and shoulder (yes, it does bloody hurt! and did I mention that I REALLY hate needles :O )
At my last appointment my neuro prescribed a daily preventative to try and help keep the migraines under control and I’m happy to say that it has been working (touch wood!!!)
Since then, other than a shocking episode last month where I had a migraine for 8 out of 10 days. I’ve only been getting one migraine every 10-12 days.
For those of you who haven’t been following along since the beginning, in March 2002, I was in a really bad car accident. One of my ongoing issues from the accident is frequent migraines (3-5 days per week!) and for the past 18 months I have been having Botox injections every 12 weeks. Finally things look like they are really starting to improve. This has been my progress.
Today I am offto my neurologist for a top-up. Wish me luck!
