Has anyone had experience with a nerve block not working that is taking or tried Botox as well?

I had a nerve block last year and it made my migraines worse. Now I'm supposed to be starting Botox but I'm nervous I'll have the same reaction. Has anyone had a nerve block fail but success with Botox? Any help would be appreciated!

How do you manage interactions with migraines?

My husband booked for us to see a rock band awhile ago for this Saturday and I really wanna go but as anyone with migraines will know-a place with ridiculously loud noises,flashing lights and lots of people is something you don't wanna face.

Anyone else get angry being in Chronic pain?

Does anyone else get angry/frustrated and very down when their migraine is hanging around,even if it's not the worst pain. I have chronic migraines almost everyday and I'm finding it harder and harder to keep a lid on my emotions and to not get angry because I'm in pain all the time.Anyone any advise on how they relax being in pain?

Has anyone used TheraSpecs, if so what was your experience? I'm looking at the ones that can be worn over prescription glasses

The window it was coming in was on the other side of the sanctuary and just barely in my peripheral vision,… read more
