Botox for migraines

This month it's been reported that Botox has been approved as a preventive treatment for chronic migraine by UK drug regulators. Patients who suffer headaches for at least 15 days a month, half of which come with migraine symptoms, are eligible.

Read the full report on the BBC website.

Person with headache

I had once considered trying an injection of Botox to cure my migraines. In 2004 whilst interviewing the owner of a medical clinic, she told me she had had Botox injected into her forehead for the usual reason of smoothing out wrinkles. A few months had passed and she hadn’t suffered a migraine since. What a great side effect! Botox at that moment seemed very tempting. Yet, did I want my forehead to be frozen without being able to form any kind of expression there? I decided it wasn’t for me. I know I would have felt very differently if I was suffering from 15 migraines or more a month. Then, I believe, I definitely would have given it a try.

Stress has long been known to trigger both tension headaches and migraines. Managing stress through the use of relaxation techniques, positive thinking, and time management can help ward off migraines.
