Does anyone get Botox for migraines?
does it work for Barometric Pressure trigger migraine?
Does insurance cover?
I have found that taking three 250 mg of cheleted magnesium helps me a lot with migraines triggered by baromatic pressure changes. One of my Neurologists studied the cheaper magnesiums & said the brand Nature Made is cheleted. Otherwise, you’d get it in a health store & its much more expensive. I guess cheleted is absorbed much better.
I swear by botox injections. They really help with my migraines. They don't take away the migraines, but they do reduce the number & intensity of my migraines.
I get Botox injections. I doesn't take the migraines away completely but does lessen the number of sttacks I get and the severity. My insurance does cover it but my co-pay is 500 because I get a large amount injected in my neck and shoulders. Insurance covers for every 90 days. I do know that after 60 days my migraines start coming back more frequently and pain more intense. I missed two series of my injections because of funds but figured since my go pay for ER is 300. I still have out of pocket money for pain and the hospital is not giving narcotics anymore. It takes around two weeks for the Botox to kick in. As far as barometric pressure. I'm laying in bed right now because of the weather. Turned really humid and overcast and just got my injection s week and a half ago. Barometric pressure are my number one trigger and hard to get under control.
Hope my response helps some.
Weather does trigger mine also, even with Botox, but they are not as severe. Then heavy stress causes them to come back but not with the same intensity as before Botox. I just can't tell you what a relief it's been after years and years of suffering more days and nights without. I don't know what the long term effect will be but I'm 70 so what can be worse than missing more of life to screaming raging pain or more days without that? I've opted to go with life without the raging pain and enjoying what I can for the first time in 70 years. :)
