If you have never had a migraine, it can be easy to dismiss them as being a bad headache. Anyone who has experienced a migraine or suffers from chronic migraines can tell you that they are much worse than that. Taking a nap or some Tylenol won’t provide you with the relief you need.

Migraines are often described as a throbbing pain in one area of the head that can last from anywhere between four hours and 72 hours. While one aspect of a migraine can be described as a very intense headache, there are multiple aspects that occur simultaneously.

During a migraine, people often experience:

  • Pain
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Sensitivity to sound and light
  • Blurred vision

Many people find that the only way to properly treat their migraines is with professional medical care. An effective treatment option for migraines is injection of neuromodulators. Injecting Botox into an identified migraine trigger point has been shown to reduce the frequency and severity of migraines.
