Botox for chronic migraines & headache

BOTOX® is the authorised chronic migraine treatment in adults. 15 headaches per month for 3 months, at least 8 days of which are characterised by nausea, sensitivity to light or sound, throbbing or lateralizing pain, or migraines lasting more than a few hours, is considered chronic migraine.

How does Botox work for migraines?

Botulinum toxin (Botox) is thought to enter tiny nerves, known as C-fibres, that carry pain from the head to the brain. This reduces the amount of chemicals released from nerve endings, interrupting the feedback pathways that perpetuate migraines and headaches.

Types of migraines and their causes

Migraines affect about 25% of women in the UK, and 1 in 12 men in their lives, whereas cluster headaches are much less common, perhaps affecting 1,000 of them. It is important to know that there are many different types of headaches and migraines and not all can be treated with Botox.

Migraines are usually unilateral, lodged behind one eye, and occur sporadically or frequently. The seizures last from 4 hours to 24 hours with the above symptoms.

Causes of migraine:

  • Malaise
  • Stress and bright sunshine
  • Changes in sleep patterns and diet
  • Hormone
  • Oral contraceptives
  • Strong smell
  • Nitrates in certain foods or alcohol
  • Other less common types of migraine include menstrual-related migraine

Migraines are more common in children, ocular migraines cause temporary vision loss, and hemiplegia include menstrual migraines, which is manifested by migraine-like symptoms, which rarely cause migraines. The causes of aforementioned symptoms and weakness on one side of the body.
