Migraine Treatment:

What is Chronic migraine?
Migraine is a neurological syndrome characterised by altered bodily perceptions - aura, severe headaches and nausea. Typically, a migraine headache is unilateral and pulsating, lasting from 4 to 72 hours; symptoms are increased by sensitivity to light and to sound.

What causes Migraine?

Migraines are extreme headaches that can cause nausea, vomiting and sensitivity to light. Any kind of anxiety, stress, exposure to light, caffeine, alcohol, hunger, or sleeplessness can prompt this type of severe headache. Hormonal changes ie. during pregnancy and peri-menstrual, can trigger such headaches.  

How does Botox treat Chronic migraine?
The discovery of Botox for the use of migraines came about accidentally as patients who happened to suffer from migraines noticed that their migraines improved after cosmetic Botox injections to reduce brow and forehead wrinkles.

A possible explanation is that Botox may affect nerve cell signaling systems that have to do with the perception of pain. Treatment of chronic migraines with Botox injections appears to be effective, but the Botox injections do not appear to work for episodic migraines. The effect of the treatment usually lasts between six to nine months.
