Recognizing a migraine
Various medical conditions can result in headaches. However, the pain and the symptoms of a migraine are unique and easily identifiable. You may have a migraine if you experience a combination of the following symptoms:
- Severe throbbing or a pulsating headache
- Seeing blind spots
- Tingling in the arms and legs
- Numbness in the face
- Nausea and vomiting
- Increased sensitivity to light
- Excessive sweating
- Physical discomfort and body pain
If you do experience any of these symptoms on a regular basis, it’s best to visit a medical practitioner. Migraine Specialist Dr. David Rosenberg can help you find a solution to your migraine.
What is Botox headache and migraine treatment?
Are you looking for a lasting solution to your chronic headaches? If yes, the Botox Headache and Migraine Treatment is the answer. Botox Headache and Migraine Treatment is a simple injection that works in several ways to help improve the symptoms of migraines and chronic headaches. Botox for headaches temporarily weakens the muscles that are linked to triggering headaches and migraines.
Botox also affects the nerves within those muscles, helping to reduce the incidence of these headaches. This treatment ensures that you are not overcome by debilitating headaches, especially when you need to be at your fittest and most alert. Ultimately, the Botox injection is used as a diagnostic test to determine which muscles and nerves are causing your pain and it provides a preview of what you might expect to experience from one or more of our surgical procedures.
Is the back of the head another source of migraine headaches?
Sometimes the trigger spot for a migraine is the back of the head. The major nerve in question in this area is the greater occipital nerve. Other nerves that can be involved include the lesser occipital nerve and the third occipital nerve. Botox Treatment can be used to relax the compression of these nerves and treat migraine nerve blocks.
At our clinic we will have a discussion with you about your symptoms and Dr. Rosenberg will create a treatment plan that is designed to treat your specific symptoms. Our injections are sterilized and safe to use. Dr. Rosenberg, a reputed plastic surgeon, has extensive experience both in surgery and Botox treatments and you can rely on him for personalized care. His expertise in administering the injections will ensure that there is little to no bruising or swelling.
The effects of the treatment vary depending on the person. For some the benefits may last for months and for others only a few weeks. Depending on this, if the Botox treatment provides significant relief to your headache pain, the injections can be repeated at intervals of 2-3 months. Additionally, surgical removal of a part of the semispinalis nerve may give more permanent relief.
If you are suffering from migraine headaches, reach out to us now and schedule a consultation with DR. Rosenberg.
Benefits of treating migraines with Botox
Choosing Botox treatment for migraine headaches will be the best decision you will ever take. The treatment is designed to provide patients instant relief from chronic headaches and related symptoms. Some of the benefits of the Botox treatment include:
- Botox is the first FDA-approved preventive treatment for migraine headaches.
- The treatment will prevent chronic headaches from developing.
- It is easy to administer and extremely safe.
- The treatment lasts only a few minutes and patients can get back to their routine in a day.
As with any medical procedure along with the benefits, Botox too has certain complications. However, it must be noted that less than 10% of patients experience these symptoms.
Complications from Botox for headaches could include:
- Unbalanced muscle weakening that could alter the position of the brows or eyelids and make them asymmetrical. These changes are temporary, as Botox is always temporary; but could last several months and be distressing. However, these asymmetries are notably rare.
- Rarely, the Botox could migrate down toward the muscles controlling the upper eyelid, paralyzing them slightly and causing the upper lid to droop. This again is temporary and lasts only a few hours to a few days. However, there is a positive side-effect of the Botox treatment – the smoothing of the forehead and mid-brow.
Despite these complications, it must be noted that the benefits of Botox far outweigh the risks. This is why Botox is the favored treatment for thousands of people who suffer from chronic migraines.
