I have chronic migraine and it’s getting worse but since I’m still 17 there aren’t many treatment options for me. My neurologist suggested Botox, is it worth it? What’s getting Botox for migraines like?

      I am also 17 and I finally was able to get botox a few days ago but insurance fought on it and nurtec helped me a lot.

      I got Botox once while I was pretty young and hated it, but I know a lot of people who it was a miracle for. For me what works best are the monthly injection like aimovig and emgality

      I take self-injections called Emgality. It’s once a month and it seems to help quite a bit. I’ve also been taking sumatriptan for occasional headaches. Works wonders.

      I have found that Botox helps me more than any other treatment that I’ve tried. I was really nervous the first time I got it but it wasn’t nearly as bad as I thought it would be. Getting it can be uncomfortable and may hurt a tiny bit if your muscles are tight but I find that it is well worth it for the relief I get.
