Chronic migraine headaches

Botulinum toxin, for example Botox® or Dysport®, have been shown to be highly effective in preventing the headaches, nausea and dizziness associated with chronic migraines that afflict hundreds of thousands of people every year. As well as being a muscle relaxant, Botox may also be effective at blocking pain signals.

Chronic migraine symptoms include: Severe headache, Visual disturbances such as spots or flashing lights, Sensitivity to light, noise, or smells, Nausea and vomiting, Tingling sensations, pins and needles, and weakness or numbness in the limbs.

To treat chronic migraine headaches, Botox is injected every 12-16 weeks to specific sites around the head, neck and upper back.

 


I have suffered really badly from migraine for years, probably three or four times a month. A friend told me about Cheralyn and she recommended a Botox® treatment to try to block the attacks. The effect has been life changing for me. I feel so much better.
