Do I Need Botox Injections?
If you have been diagnosed with migraine headaches and you have them often, botox injections may be the solution for you. Botox injections have been found to decrease the number of days patients experienced migraines. Botox injections also increased the number of days per month that patients were pain-free.
Botox injections prevent chemicals called neurotransmitters that send pain signals to your brain. Botox acts as a roadblock. It prevents the chemicals from getting to the nerve endings around your head and neck.
Common Symptoms of Migraines
Migraines can range from mild to extremely intense. The most common symptoms of a migraine are:
- Throbbing in a specific area that intensifies
- Sensitivity to light
- Sensitivity to sound
- Pain in the face or neck
- Dull pain
- Dizziness or lightheadedness
If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms and over-the-counter medicine hasn’t helped, it takes to try something new.
Am I a Candidate for Botox Injections?
Candidates that are a good fit for botox injections for migraines have not had success with over-the-counter medicines and remedies. They have intense headaches that last for days and impact their day-to-day life. Patients who have tried conservative methods and still have migraines are good candidates for botox injections.
