What is Chronic Migrane / Headache?
A migraine is a headache that can cause severe throbbing pain or a pulsing sensation, usually on one side of the head that can last from hours to days. It’s often accompanied by nausea, vomiting, and extreme sensitivity to light and sound. If you have symptoms at least 8 days out of the month, you may have either chronic migraine or high-frequency migraine. Migraines typically first start during a person’s teens to early twenties, but they can begin anytime from early childhood to late- adulthood.
Symptoms and Complications
A migraine usually has three stages: the period leading up to the headache (known as the premonitory or prodromal phase), the migraine itself (the headache phase), and the period following the headache (known as the postdromal phase).
Botox is a neurotoxin, a protein produced by bacteria called Clostridium Botulinum. The protein used for medical therapy is a purified form. When you have a migraine, your body releases substances called neurotransmitters and molecules that are associated with pain. Botox is injected around pain fibers (neck, face and head) that are involved in headaches. Botox enters the nerve endings around where it is injected and blocks the release of chemicals involved in pain transmission. This prevents activation of pain networks in the brain
