BOTOX INJECTIONS FOR MIGRAINE RELIEF
Many people, mostly women, suffer from painful headaches that are vascular in nature—the so-called “migraine” headache. There is a spectrum from occasional migraine (occurring once or twice a year), to the person with migraines that could occur 20 or more times a month. There are also different type of migraine headaches including migraines with and without aura, ophthalmologic migraines and others. There are also other vascular headaches including a variety of vascular headaches caused by rheumatologic or connective tissue diseases, and cluster headaches. Migraine is a vascular headache that can cause spasm and lack of blood flow to your brain. That is why it is important for all individuals with migraines to seek medical evaluation. In fact, it is not uncommon to see the result of small vessel damage on MRIs of people who suffer from migraines indicating that they have has very small damage to their brain.
