Migraine is one of the most common primary headaches. The disease affects about 10-15% of the general population, mainly young people, more often it occurs in women. 80-90% of migraine cases are migraine without aura. In other patients, headache is preceded by neurological symptoms called aura.
The most common symptom of migraine aura is visual disturbance (zigzag shadows in the field of vision, mottles or visual field defects), but additional symptoms such as hemiparesis, hemiparesis, aphasia, nausea, vomiting, photophobia, and photosensitivity may also occur.
In the case of a troublesome disease such as migraine, treatment can be based on pharmacological agents or unconventional methods. Botox migraine treatment is gaining more and more supporters, as is migraine treatment with acupuncture, herbs or using psychotherapy.
Botox migraine treatment
Botox is the trade name of botulinum toxin, which is a product of the bacterium Clostridum botulinum. Botox is usually associated with the use in aesthetic medicine, where it is used to smooth wrinkles and rejuvenate the appearance of the face.
In fact, however, for over 50 years, Botox has been used in medicine on an increasing scale, among others as a pain reliever. It turns out that it is also possible to treat migraine with botox. In particular, this therapy is recommended for people suffering from chronic migraine. The so-called Botox type A Blockade, which is obtained with the help of Botox injections, is to be effective from 3 to 6 months. During this time, attacks of migraine pain should clearly ease and even subside. This effect is observed in approximately 80 percent of patients. Unfortunately, this does not always mean getting rid of the disease once and for all.
