Has anyone had any luck with Aimovig injections? I just started my first injection today. I have chronic migraine and nothing I have tried in the past has helped. Hoping this will work for me!

Look up the side effects if you have any stomach problems like conpatation I wouldn't do it. There 3 other shots beside this shot.

When you look back on photos that were taken over your lifetime, do you remember in which ones you had a migraine?

When you look back on photos that were taken over your lifetime, do you remember in which ones you had a migraine?

Who can see a photo that you were in, taken many years gone by, and remember that you had a migraine at that time? It was bitter sweet to look back, on so many memories (when I was not behind the camera), and know 'yes', I was covering a migraine then. If I had to guess, it has been easily )the hardest 3/4) of my lifetime. I am 62.

Getting Botox?

Getting Botox?

I am supposed to start Botox treatments in May. All the conventional treatments have not been successful.

I am interested in experiences others have had.

What do you think of the imitrex injection?

What do you think of the imitrex injection?

My neurologist prescribes these to me. I've only taken them a few times. But the pain of the shot gets worse every time I take it. It's literally unbearable. I get chest pains really bad afterwards, and really bad tightening in my jaw. And I know it says redness at the injection site is normal.... but I had a red welt from the shot, as well as a bunch of little bumps all around it. Then it got bigger was swollen about the size of a quarter for a few hours.

With that… read more
