Treating Your Chronic Migraines

Migraines are far more intense than typical headaches and can interfere with the quality of life when they become chronic. The constant pain alone makes it difficult to show up for work and other daily responsibilities. It may also make performing to the best of your ability impossible.

If you or someone you love suffers from chronic migraines, you may already know that medication isn't always effective. If you're searching for solutions that are more natural and long-lasting, BOTOX® is something to consider.

What Causes Chronic Migraines?

Some people never discover the cause of their chronic migraines with certainty. There are many potential causes that are still under medical review, but pinpointing the trigger in each individual can take time.

Some of the more common causes of chronic migraines include:

  • Fasting or skipping meals.
  • Food sensitivities.
  • Hormonal fluctuations.
  • Medication side effects.
  • Stress.
  • Unhealthy sleep patterns.

Sometimes simple things like excessive caffeine consumption or intense exercise can also lead to a migraine. Those occasional migraines are painful, but the debilitating impact comes when something causes migraines to repeat frequently.

Add sensitivity to light, smells, and other sensory input and you see why chronic migraines can leave you in a dark room, curled up in bed, missing out on life. In some cases, nausea and even vomiting are common.

The Best Treatment for Migraine Pain

BOTOX® is one of the best treatments for chronic migraines because it's readily available and can last for up to three months. You don't have to take pills every day to use BOTOX® for chronic pain relief, but you can safely combine this treatment with pain medication and other treatments prescribed by your medical practitioner.

For some people, BOTOX® eliminates migraines for months at a time. For others, the treatments lessen the frequency of migraines or the intensity of the pain. The results are difficult to predict because there are so many potential causes for migraines, but it doesn't hurt to give it a try since BOTOX® is a safe injection that takes little time to administer.
