Life with botox

marcol Community Member June 15, 2011
  • I'm a person who has been with migraine since 11 years old, I was getting older it got  worse, there has been moments I really I've tought in finishing my life, about eight months ago I decided for Botox, I got surprised to see it work really beautifully, today I can't get them back really I won't be able to support it again, Is there someone who can share experience on this with me? This weeek I've got so many again.

    Hello, and welcome to MyMigraineConnection.com!

    I'm glad you found us, but sorry you have to be here! I am a bit confused about your sharepost, will you help me out? Is it that you can't afford Botox anymore and had great success with it? Or that Botox isn't helping anymore? If you could answer those questions, maybe I can point you in the right direction....
