Well, it’s that time again!
It’s been 3 months since my last dose of Botox to treat my migraines, so back to the neuro I go, for another 40 odd injections in my head (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 & 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 12-14 days.
For those of you who haven’t been following along since the beginning, here’s my story so far.
11 years ago I was in a really bad car accident. One of my ongoing issues from the accident is frequent migraines (3-5 days per week!). For the past 18 months I have been having Botox injected into my head, neck & shoulder every 12 weeks. Finally things are really starting to improve. This has been my progress.
Today I am off for a top-up. Wish me luck.
