Sometimes life causes headaches, but what constitutes chronic migraines? The definition for chronic migraine is having 15 or more headache days per month with the headache lasting for over 4 hours. Surprisingly, over 3 million adults in the US suffer from chronic migraines! As a result, people try numerous medications to manage these symptoms. Besides the typical over the counter anti-inflammatory medications, this may include beta blockers, anti-depressants, other neuropathic medications like gabapentin. While these can help reduce or manage the headache symptoms, they tend to come with a lot of side effects. For people who can’t tolerate the medication or have not seen improvement in the symptoms, Botox for migraines can be a great option. It entails injections with a small needle performed every 12 weeks. The data shows 8-9 fewer headache days per month after just 2 treatments. If you have been suffering with chronic migraines, Regenexx Pittsburgh can help determine if Botox injections are right for you.
