just thought i'd read and see if anyone had any similar stories or experiencies to mine..i'm a chronic migraine sufferer..about 10 years now i guess. i am 29. a few years ago i was diagnosed with arnold chiari malformation. i was having blackouts and migraines just about daily. last year i had posterior fossa decompression surgery. at the same time i was diagnosed with that i also found out i had spina bifida..so they also removed three of my vertebra. after my recovery the surgery seemed to have helped drastically for about three months...then everything went right back to the way it was. i am still on every bit of medication i ever was on. the migraines are full force. i began a botox treatment last friday for my migraines. 31 injections in my head, face and neck every three months...we'll see how this works ??
