Migraine is a very serious headache and a health problem.Vomiting, nausea, light sensitivity may accompany migraine. Migraine patients experience a lot of difficulties in their social life during the attacks. Migraine is 3 times more common in women than men. Migraine treatment begins with the regulation of lifestyle. Various painkillers are given as prescribed.
Botox has been used in the treatment of chronic migraine since the early 2000s. Substances such as substance P and calcitonin gene related peptide, etc. that are released from nerve endings serve to create pain. Botulinum toxin blocks these nerve endings and prevents pain. In addition to the chronic migraine, Botox can also be beneficial in chronic tension-type headaches.
