    Migranes are fucking horrible. I'm not taking Botox for it though.

    if it works to relieve migraines, use it. my sister had migraines and i'm pretty sure that is about the equivalent of being set on fire. It's awful for the person suffering, as well as for the people close to them because there is absolutely nothing you can do to help them.

    This sounds like an insurance scam.

    I've actually crawled under my bed to get away from sound and light during one. It's horrible beyond words.

    This and this.

    I'd still rather follow up on my migraine fantasy of carving out that piece of my head with cheese cutting wire than inject botox into it though. Maybe after the next round of them I will change my mind :dontknow:

    i think the botox goes in as a preventive/preventative/whatever before the migraine starts.
